- Story Text: Ardy Wiranata beat compatriot Joko Suprianto 15-9 14-17 15-9 to take the men's title on Sunday (July 16) as Indonesians won both singles and the mixed doubles finals in the Indonesia Open Badminton Championships.
Suprianto, the seventh seed, appeared exhausted after a hard-fought match of lobs and long rallies.
Earlier, to the delight of the partisan crowd, second seed Susi Susanti retained her women's title in Jakarta's Senayan stadium, beating South Korea's Bang Soo-Hyun 11-6 11-7.
For Susanti, victory was sweet revenge after losing her world number one ranking to Bang last month.
In the all-Indonesian mixed doubles, Trikusharyanto and Minarti Timur beat Flandy Limpele and Risyeu Rosalina 15-10 15-5.
Indonesia went into the championships determined to recover some of its badminton glory after last month's battering in Switzerland. They lost 3-1 to China in the last round of the Sudirman Cup mixed team championship in Lausanne.
The Open, worth 170,000 U.S. dollars in prize money, started on July 12 with 400 players and officials from 19 countries.
