LI Xiaoxia has not been at her best for the last six months, so this victory will give her a lot of confidence in the lead into the upcoming World Championships: "I've not been able to practice for the past few months, I have had a back injury."
"It's only a few days ago that I was really able to practice properly; as the tournament progressed, I felt I was playing better and better. Of course I am focused on the World Championships and hope to achieve a good result there."
The Chinese duo of DING Ning & ZHU Yuling were too good for HAN Ying & Irene IVANCAN from Germany, winning 11-3,11-6,11-9 to become the women's doubles champions.
Denmark's ZHAI Yujia & Hong Kong's DOO Hoi Kem rounded off the medals, by winning the respective men's& women's under 21 titles.
There is no rest for the world's best table tennis players, as they now head straight to Doha for the GAC Group 2015 World Tour Super Series Qatar Open, which starts on Tuesday 17 February until 22 February 2015.
