Praveen Jordan and Melati Daeva Oktavianti won back-to-back World Tour titles.


Last week Praveen Jordan and Melati Daeva Oktavianti won Denmark Open. This Sunday in Paris the two Indonesians celebrated again after winning the French Open mixed doubles final.

For the second time in two weeks Jordan and Oktavianti beat the world number one and defending world champions Zhang Siwei and Huang Yaqiong, China, in three games: 22-24 21-16 21-12.

No words
It is the first time in two years that an Indonesian mixed doubles pair wins the French Open. In 2017 legends Liliyana Natsir and Tontowi Ahmad claimed the title.

- We have no words. We are so happy to get two wins in a row in Europe, Praveen Jordan said.

- We keep communicating and supporting each other and that is the key for us, Melati Daeva Oktavianti added.
