Li Xuerui beat Tai Tzu Ying 2-0 to retain the title.

World No.1 singles Lee Chong Wei and Li Xuerui both claimed titles at the BWF (Badminton World Federation) World Superseires Finals after easy victories respectively on Sunday.

Lee delivered a quick defeat to Indonesian shuttler Tommy Sugiarto 21-10 21-12, winning his seventh Superseries title this year.

"I am very happy because I have never won 7 titles (in a year) before," said the 31-year-old Malaysian. "It would boost my spirit for the games next year."

In women's singles, Chinese Taipei's Tai Tzu Ying, who made to the finals after a grilling semifinal late Saturday, couldn't stop China's Li Xuerui from retaining the championship.

Li sealed the match 21-8 21-14, winning the only event for China.

Danish player Christinna Pedersen gave China a double blow on Sunday as she and Kamilla Rytter Juhl beat Ma Jin/Tang Jinhua 21-19 21-12 in women's doubles, before successfully defended the mixed doubles title against Zhang Nan/Zhao Yunlei with teammate Joachim Fischer Nielsen.

In men's doubles, world No. 1 Mohammad Ahsan/Hendra Setiawan, from Indonesia were crowned the champions by defeating South Korean pair Kim Ki Jung/Kim Sa Rang 21-14 21-16.
