New Delhi: An inconsistent Saina Nehwal let slip benefit as she went down to world number one Wang Yihan in the summit clash in the BWF season-ending World Superseries Finals in Liuzhou, China on Sunday.
The world number four, the first Indian to make the final of the prominent event, lost 21-18, 13-21, 13-21 against the Chinese in a contest enduring over an hour.
With this triumph, Yihan kept her 100 per cent record against Saina intact, having now beaten her in all their four face-offs thus far.
This is Yihan’s 6th title of the year, which comprises the World Championships crown. For Saina, this is her 3rd finish as runners-up.
