LEE & YOO HIT SUPERSERIES SIX, NG EARNS FIRST MEDAL
Six Superseries in one season; yes, that was a half of the twelve Superseries titles up for grabs in 2015, and now won by just one team -- #TeamVICTOR’s Lee Yong Dae and Yoo Yeon Seong as they conquer Hong Kong Open, the last major event heading to the 2015 BWF Superseries Finals starting in Dec 9.
This will be the second time the grand year-end finale will be staged in Dubai, where Lee and Yoo are defending the crowns.
In Sunday’s title match, World no.1s Lee and Yoo cruised comfortably until 21-7, 15-10 when their final rivals, Boe/Mogensen notched five points in a row and stole away the second game. Scores remained tight in the decider; however, Lee and Yoo used a mid-game charge to hold a five-point cushion at 13-8, and the comeback was not to happen this time from the Danes. Lee and Yoo became #TheRealDeal after a 21-7, 18-21, 21-18 marathon in 71 minutes.
Yoo, partnering Chang Ye Na this week in the mixed doubles, as well as their teammates Shin Baek Choel/Chae Yoo Jung, took another two bronze medals for Korea and Team VICTOR.
