Marin seals comeback with China Open singles title

Triple world champion Carolina Marin retained her China Open title yesterday, eight months after suffering a career-threatening injury.

The Spaniard recovered from a game down to defeat Chinese Taipei’s second-seeded Tai Tzu-ying 14-21, 21-17, 21-18 in Changzhou, eastern Jiangsu Province. A tearful Marin collapsed to the court floor and buried her head in her hands after powering to victory in 65 minutes. “It’s unbelievable,” said the 26-year-old, who injured her anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee in January. “I couldn’t imagine during my rehabilitation that I could win in my second tournament back. But I did and I feel so happy with myself,” added the reigning Olympic champion. Japan’s world champion Kento Momota cemented his place as the top men’s player with a 19-21, 21-17, 21-19 win over Indonesia’s seventh seed Anthony Sinisuka Ginting in their final.
