World No.6 badminton player Nguyen Tien Minh of Vietnam won the Yonex Australia Open Grand Prix in Melbourne on Sunday, securing his first tournament win of the year.
In the men’s singles final, the Vietnamese ace gained his straight-game win over Malaysia’s Yogendran Krishnan as he had done one day earlier over India Open champion Alamsyah Yunus of Indonesia.
