The match ended in 11-5, 11-3, 11-9, 11-4, in favour to Ding Ning and Zhu Yuling. 

“Through this competition, we have gained a lot including some things in the technical aspect. Actually, we prepared a lot for today’s final match. Therefore, I felt we were able to control the situation in the game. We were into the momentum much faster.” Ding Ning said.
