Indonesia Sweeps Finals

JOHOR BARU, Malaysia World Champion Joko Suprianto trounced Malaysia's Rashid Sidek in the Malaysian badminton open finals to give Indonesia a sweep of both the men's and women's singles titles.


World No. 1 Susi Susanti of Indonesia dismissed second-seed Ye Zhaoying of China 11-3 11-8 in the women's final.


Joko had surprisingly little difficulty Sunday with Rashid, the men's singles champion in this tournament from 1990 to 1992. His emphatic 15-3, 15-5 win was his first title of the year and his first Malaysian Open victory in five attempts.
