Carolina Marin wins the 2015 Australian Open title
Marin defeated Shixian Wang in straight games.
Carolina Marin of Spain clinched the 2015 Australian Open Women’s Singles title, after defeating Shixian Wang of China 22-20 21-18 in the finals on Sunday. Game 1 saw the Spaniard race off to an early lead 4-0 lead, but Wang made a fine comeback into the match to make it 4-4.
Despite that turnover, though, Wang couldn't build any sufficient pressure on Marin and it didn't help her cause that 2015 All England Open winner continued to take a bigger lead over her opponent on a regular basis and eventually sealed the opening game 22-20.
In the second game, Marin once again took an early lead, going 4-1 up and despite Wang winning 4 consecutive points to go from being 8-6 down to 10-8 up, she still couldnt maintain a firm grip on proceedings and eventually lost the game 21-18.
