Jakarta, Jun 17: India's badminton star Saina Nehwal today won the Indonesia Open title for the third time beating Li Xuerui of  China  13-21, 22-20, 21-19 in a pulsating final.





Li, currently World number 3, had entered the final beating world champion compatriot Wang Yihan in the semifinal.

Li had a 4-1 career record over Saina, but today was Saina's day.

Despite losing the first game tamely, Saina, who is currently world number 5, made an amazing comeback, saving two match points in the second game, and winning both the second and third games with close margins to win the title.
