JAKARTA, June 18 (Xinhua) -- China's No. 5 women's doubles players Chen Qingchen/Jia Yifan were crowned at the Indonesia Open Super Series here on Sunday, beating No. 3 players from South Korea Chang Ye na/Lee So he 21-19, 15-21, 21-10 in the final.

"Perhaps they have more pressures after won in Sudirman Cup last month. We have our strategy. We just gambled on with the match, which we eventually won," Jia Yifan told a press conference held in the tournament venue of Jakarta Convention Center (JCC) here.

South Korea won the 2017 Sudirman Cup held in Gold Coast, Australia last month with China being the runners-up.
