After winning the first set 21-16, Zheng and Huang dominated the second set with attacking play and wrapped it up 21-11 to clinch their third title together at the All England Open.

In the women's singles final, Spaniard Carolina Marin fought extremely hard to win over Akane Yamaguchi 26-24 in the first set before the Japanese ace retired due to a hip injury while trailing 11-1 in the second set.
