WD – F: Lee/Shin at the top of the Eiffel Tower

After exiting the competition in the semifinal stage last year, the 2017 runners-up Lee/Shin defeated the eighth wonder of the women’s double ranking, Kim/Kong.

No Japanese pairs in the final of the French Open, Super 750 tournament. Korea’s Lee/Shin and Kim/Kong troubled them in semi-finals and competed Korea against Korea for the title today in Stade Pierre de Coubertin. 

Today’s final was a rematch of the Korean Open where Kim/Kong came out as a solid promising Korean pair, number 3 in the HSBC World Tour Finals ranking. 

But the relationship between Paris and Lee/Shin is strong. Runners-up in 2017, they were stopped in semi-final by the Stoeva sisters last year in 2018. Champion in 2018, it could not have been otherwise. 

Kim/Kong won the opening game with strong attacking shots and solid defense and took a 11-9 lead at the mid-game interval of the second one. But Lee/Shin came back and gradually took a 2-point advantage. They trashed their opponents in the decider and won the French Open Super 750 title in 3 games 19-21 21-16 21-12.
