Zhang Nan and Zhao Yunlei of China have won the Yonex Open Japan 2013 Mixed Doubles final by walkover.
This is due to the fact that their compatriot, Xu Chen, is suffering from a high fever and therefore he and his partner, Ma Jin, will not contest today’s showdown which was slated to be the first final played.
Ma Jin still has a shot at a title in Japan, playing in the Women’s Doubles final with Tang Jinhua. Their opponents are Danish duo, Kamilla Rytter Juhl and Christinna Pedersen.
