# Kien Keat-Boon Heong too strong for Indian pair
# India’s Ajay Jayaram retain men’s singles title
Independent pair Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong are the men’s doubles champions in USD50,000 Yonex Dutch Open Grand Prix Gold champions.
In the final played in Almere on Sunday the seventh seeded Malaysians out smashed India’s Manu Attri-B. Sumeeth Reddy 21-15, 21-10 in 25 minutes and pocket USD3,950. The second seeded Indians took home USD1,900.
The former Asian Games champions are shaping up fine in their bid to qualify for the the 2016 Rio Olympics and their recent success has put them on track.
Last week the Malaysians finished runners-up in the Thailand Open Grand Prix Gold and they made up for the disappointment in Bangkok with a smashing display.
Kien Keat-Boon Heong had a much easier time against the Indian pair compared to their semi-final encounter where they had to bring out their experience to subdue the Taiwanese pair of Lee Jhe-huei-Yang Lee before prevailing 21-19, 19-21, 21-16.
As expected the men’s singles final saw India’s Ajay Jayaram, the third seed, retain his title with 21-12, 21-18 win over Estonia’s Raul Must in 34 minutes and took home USD3,750.
The women’s singles final saw Scotland’s Kirsty Gilmour, seeded fifth, upset third seeded Karin Shnaase of Germany with a 21-16, 21-13 win for the USD3,750 prize money.
