Indonesia's top mixed doubles shuttlers, Tontowi Ahmad and Liliyana Natsir, defeated compatriots Praveen Jordan and Debby Susanto in the final match of the Hong Kong Open Super Series badminton tournament on Sunday to clinch the title. 

The Rio Olympic gold medalists outclassed their juniors in two straight games 21-19, 21-17 in 42 minutes in the match at the Hong Kong Coliseum in Kowloon.

The victory hands them their second title as many weeks. Last week, they claimed the title of the China Open Super Series Premier championship. (dmr)
