Hong Kong's Zhou Mi captured her second Super Series title by winning the China Masters in Jiangsu yesterday. The former world number one edged 2006 champion Wang Lin of China 2-1 (21-19, 19-21, 21-16) in the final. Zhou also reached the Super Series final in Tokyo last week, but lost to mainlander Wang Yihan. 'It was really exhausting going through three games against the youngster,' said Zhou, who took the winner's cheque of US$18,770. Zhou, 29, won her first Super Series title for Hong Kong at the Korea Open earlier this year.
