German shuttler Juliane Schenk won her first Superseries title at the Li-Ning Singapore Open on Sunday afternoon.

The second seed defeated fourth seed Cheng Shao Chieh of Chinese Taipei in straight sets 21-11, 26-24 in the final at the Singapore Indoor Stadium. Top seed Jiang Yanjiao had withdrawn before the start of the tournament.

Schenk, the world No. 6, needed five championship points to close out the tenacious Taiwanese, who was appearing in her first final at a Superseries tournament.

She took home a winner's cheque of US$15,000.
