Akane Yamaguchi and Kanta Tsuneyama secured Japanese success in singles competition as the Badminton World Federation (BWF) French Open concluded in Paris.

Japanese success was assured in the women’s singles with top seed Yamaguchi facing compatriot Sayaka Takanashi in the final at the Stade Pierre de Coubertin.

Yamaguchi had triumphed in both her quarter and semi-final matches in three games, but claimed the title in straightforward fashion.
