Bao Chunlai (China) beat the hell out of Boonsak Ponsana's(THA) badminton fitness


Yes, that how Bao defeated Boonsak in the finals of Singapore Open Men Singles, 21-19, 16-21, 21-15 (see the final score here)

Not without a great fight though, with Boonsak Ponsana (BP) showing tremendous badminton talent that brought him the title last year in the same arena. Bao Chunlai (BC) was as fiery as he is before, showing his experience and fitness stamina that erased BP's mindset. Not a few referee (net touch)  and line calls were contested by BC. Near the end of the third set, BC regained his composure and capitalized in his great fitness form to dominate the now obviously tired BP.

The Men's singles finals showed some amazing shots and retrieval in the whole tournament. Cross court  jump smashes and dives by BP. Bao Chunlai also asserted his dominance over the net shot, but BP was equally capitalizing on this to prepare for an attack shot. In the end, both players showed heart and passion for badminton- a great match up of the young and upcoming, the experienced and composed.

Maybe if BP wasn't gasping for air near the second half of third set, he might have retained his title. But then, that is just maybe, because for sure BC would pitch all his badminton skills and tactics to gain this championship.
