Saina Nehwal overcomes Li Xuerui to lift third Indonesian Open title.
Saina Nehwal's 13-21, 22-20, 21-19 win over China's Li Xuerui proves the die-hard spirit of the 22-year-old "It was a really, really tough and I love the crowd here. It's really nice here. Whenever I enter the court, I feel like a champion here," said the world number five 22-year-old, who has earlier clinched the title in 2009 and 2010.But it was the netplay in which Li enjoyed the upper hand with her delicate winners that Saina found hard to counter in the opening game.However, Saina let slip a championship point before clinching the game, match and the trophy when Li smashed a backhand stroke into the net.
