 Chen Long returns a shot in the game.

World champion Chen Long finished the year on a high note, winning the BWF Destination Dubai World Superseries Finals title with relative ease.

The World champion from China was tested in phases by Hans-Kristian Vittinghus, but the Dane could not quite sustain his challenge through the entirety of the match and he went down 21-16 21-10 in 47 minutes.

Chen blazed off to a good start, with his blistering smashes finding their mark, but Vittinghus fought back gamely in the second.

The Dane fought doggedly, throwing himself around and patiently working the openings. On a few occasions he kept the rallies going by retrieving from near-impossible situations; at 10-all it looked like a close contest, but the complexion changed completely after the mid-game interval. Vittinghus was guilty of a few errors and that derailed his chances – Chen didn’t drop a point from then on.

Vittinghus rued the mistakes in the second game that had destroyed his chances.
