Ramadona, who won his first international title back in 2010 when he captured the ABF Tour Hong Kong, needed only one match to beat challenger and No. 2 seed, Yaqoub Al Shatii of Kuwait, 237-201 to win the Men's Open title.

The Indonesian started off with three strikes-in-a-row as the Kuwaiti had an opened frame in the third with a split. Ramadona rolled another turkey after frame 5 and when Yaqoub encountered another split in the sixth frame, the match was sealed and done for Ramadona.

An early miss in the second frame costed Ng and despite striking out from frame 9, she narrowly lost the first match, 220-222. But Ng bounced back stronger to bring home a clean game while Tan suffered a split in the third frame and never recovered. Ng went on to win the deciding match, 206-197 for the victory.

"Finishing first yesterday gave my confidence a big boost but I had to work extremely hard today to earn the top seed," said the 27-year-old Ng, who had finished third twice, once last year and once in 2010.
