The World No. 8 defeated China’s Sun Yu, 11-21, 21-14, 21-19, in a three-game final that lasted an hour and 11 minutes in Sydney on Sunday. This is Nehwal's second Australian Open title.

At left, Nehwal screams in delight as she secures the title; her first on the MetLife BWF World Superseries tour since last year's YONEX-SUNRISE India Open.

This is her second Australian Open win and with the win the World No 8 has managed to clinch her maiden title of 2016 in what is a major boost for the Hyderabad-born ace ahead of the Rio Olympics.
