World number six, Xie Xinfang of China defeated higher ranking compatriot, world number four Zhu Lin 21-14, 21-7 in 33 minutes for the women's singles crown while the Chinese scratch pair of Zheng Bo/Gao Ling defeated Thomas Laybourn/Kamilla Rytter Juhl of Denmark, 22-20, 21-19 in 42 minutes for the mixed doubles title.

In another all Chinese women's doubles final, world number two pair Gao Ling/Huang Sui pulled an upset by beating world top doubles, Yang Wei/Zhang Jiewen in a rubber match 12-21, 21-14, 21-16 in 60 minutes.

Malaysia's challenge ended in yesterday's semifinals when Muhd Hafiz Hashim lost to Chen Jin in the men's singles while Koo Kien Keat/Tan Boon Heong lost to Hwang Ji Man/Lee Jae Jin in the men's doubles.

After Malaysia and Korea, the Super Series will take a break for the All England Championship (March 6-11) before continuing with the third leg, the Swiss Open, to be held from March 13 till 18.
