World No.15 Aya Ohori has ended her dry spell on the HSBC BWF World Tour by claiming victory at the PRINCESS SIRIVANNAVARI Thailand Masters 2024. In an impressive come-from-behind performance, Ohori defeated Supanida Katethong, securing her first title since December 2018.

This win marks a significant milestone for Ohori, as it is her biggest title since the US Open 2017. The emotional victory was evident as Ohori fell to the floor after a hard-fought match that lasted 81 minutes.

In the men’s singles category, Chou Tien Chen made a remarkable comeback after a recent string of poor form. Ranked No.14 in the world, Chou had only won one match in his last five tournaments. However, he bounced back with a tough three-game victory over Loh Kean Yew.

Loh, ranked No.11 in the world, had hopes of claiming his first title in over two years. Unfortunately, his dreams were shattered as Chou put on a strong performance in the decisive third game.

Another thrilling highlight of the tournament was the women’s doubles final. Local pair Benyapa Aimsaard and Nuntakarn Aimsaard delighted home fans with a thrilling victory. They narrowly defeated the Chinese pair of Li Yi Jing and Luo Xu Min in a close match that went to three games.

The teenaged men’s doubles duo of Peeratchai Sukphun and Pakkapon Teeraratsakul were outplayed by the more experienced pair of He Ji Ting and Ren Xiang Yu. Similarly, Supanida Katethong fell short against Aya Ohori in the women’s singles category.
