KUALA LUMPUR, Dec. 15 (Xinhua) -- World No. 1 singles Lee Chong Wei and Li Xuerui were crowned at the BWF (Badminton World Federation) World Superseries Finals after comprehensive victories respectively here on Sunday.

Lee delivered a quick defeat to Indonesian shuttler Tommy Sugiarto 21-10 21-12, winning his seventh Superseries title this year.

"I am very happy because I have never won seven title (in a year) before," Lee said. "It would boost my spirit for the games next year."

In Women's singles, Chinese Taipei's Tai Tzu Ying, who made to the finals in a grilling semifinal late Saturday, couldn't stop China's Li Xuerui from retaining the champion.

Li sealed the match 21-8 21-14, winning the only gold for China. She told a post-game press conference that she was able to pick up her forms through the tournament.

Danish player Christinna Pedersen gave China a double blow on Sunday as She and Kamilla Rytter Juhl beat Ma Jin/Tang Jinhua 21- 19 21-12 in Women's doubles, before successfully defended the mixed doubles champion against Zhang Nan/Zhao Yunlei with Joachim Fischer Nielsen.

In men's doubles, World No. 1 Mohammad Ahsan/Hendra Setiawan from Indonesia won the champion by defeating South Korean pair Kim Ki Jung/Kim Sa Rang 21-14 21-16.
