Li Xiaoxia defeated defending champion Guo Yue in an all-Chinese women's singles table tennis final at the Guangzhou Asian Games on Saturday.

China earlier ensured the gold and the silver medals of women's singles before the final.

World's No.4 Guo Yue, who won the title at Doha 2004, prevailed over Li Xiaxia 11-5, 11-4 and 13-11 to establish a 3-0 lead, before Li Xiaoxia fought back to tie the score with 11-8, 11-6 and 12-10.

Li then nailed Guo 11-9 in the deciding game to win her first women's singles gold at Asiad.

"I was a little bit conservative in the first two games," said Li Xiaoxia. "Turning the 0-3 disadvantage to a victory will definitely change myself. Wining this gold should be a new start of my career."

Guo Yue took the silver medal and two bronze medals went to South Korean Kim Kyung-Ah and Ai Fukuhara of Japan.
