But it's a great result for Saina who is coming back top the court after a shin injury. Apart from the title here, last week she made it to the semis in the Malasysia Masters. 

Jan 27, 2019 3:04 pm (IST)

Saina has won the Indonesia Masters here, but this is not how she would have wanted to win. 

Jan 27, 2019 3:04 pm (IST)

Marin is in serious trouble here. She is limping off the court and in tears. What an unfortunate end for Marin here. And she has conceded the match here. When she was leading 10-3 in the first game.

Jan 27, 2019 3:02 pm (IST)

Exemplary grit shown by Marin after injuring her knee. She is getting ready to play further. A golden opportunity for Nehwal to pocket this match. 

Jan 27, 2019 3:00 pm (IST)

P Kashyap and Siyadatullah will have to come up with a plan here. And Marin seems to have injured herself. This is not looking good for her and that too when she was leading 9-2. 

Jan 27, 2019 2:58 pm (IST)

The first game is moving at a rapid pace at the moment and the Indian is playing the catch-up game. Marin has been using her deceptive shots well. Marin leads 7-2. 

Jan 27, 2019 2:57 pm (IST)

Here is the first for the Indian, as Saina brings Marin close to the net, which is her strong point. First unforced error by Marin. She still leads 4-1.

Jan 27, 2019 2:56 pm (IST)

Saina, in early part of the match is not moving well on the court, whereas Marin is looking aggressive. Marin leads 3-0 now. 

Jan 27, 2019 2:55 pm (IST)

Marin, if not controlled right from the start, will not give any chance to the Indian. And the Spainiard has already taken a 2-0 lead. 

Jan 27, 2019 2:53 pm (IST)

Saina has beaten the likes of He Bingjiao and Pornpawee enroute the final and she just needs to win one more match to take the title home.  

Jan 27, 2019 2:50 pm (IST)

And both the players are on the court now. This is a golden chance to revive her career. Sh hasn't won a title in close to two years. Hopefully she can change it around here.
