Nadia, who lost to Sharon Limansantoso last year, took her revenge when she defeated her compatriot, 202-183 in the all-Indonesian women's final match and Lalisang edged this year's Thailand leg champion, Lee Tak Man of Macau, 225-213 in the men's final match to give Indonesia another double.

Nadia got off to a better start, sparing her first frame and striking in the second as Limansantoso had a split in her opening frame. When Nadia opened in the third frame, things were all level but her challenger encountered another split in the fourth frame.

Although Nadia doubled up in fourth an fifth frames, a bad single-pin miss put her just one frame up on her opponent. Fortunately she was able to roll three strikes-in-a-row to pull away to win her first-ever tour title.

The topseed edged Putty Armein, 207-203 in her Round 2 match before defeating Puteri Astari, 214-202 in the all-Indonesia first women semi-final match to reach the final.

Limansantoso dispatched Aldila Indryati, 235-224 in Round 2 before knocking out 2014 ABF Tour TOC winner, Chan Shuk Han of Hong Kong, 194-177 to reach the final.

Meanwhile, the match between Lalisang and Lee in the men's division was a much closer affair. The Indonesian had a better start with a double strike in his two opening frames but his challenger was able to draw level after rolling a double strike in the fourth and fifth frames.

By the ninth frame, there was only two pins separating the duo but Lee had two strikes in the eighth and ninth frames before going onto the tenth. Another two more stikes would put pressure on his opponent. His first throw in the tenth frame saw a stubborn pin-7 standing which he subsequently spared and struck in his bonus frame to end with 213.

Lalisang struck out to win his second tour title this year and giving a double for Indonesia. His first tour title came in Kuwait in March making him the first Asian to win two tour titles in a single year.

Lalisang also sailed past Sitiphol Kunaksorn of Thailand, 211-141 in the opening round before thrashing Isaac Russell of Malaysia, 247-202 in the second round.
