Ratchanok Intanon got a big boost ahead of the Thailand Masters when she beat Olympic champion Carolina Marin of Spain in the Indonesia Masters on Sunday.

The world No 5 rebounded after losing the second game to beat her lefthanded opponent 21-19 11-21 21-18 for her first title in 10 months and her second in the tournament since 2010 when she was just 15.

The victory marked her fourth crown in the BWF World Tour Super 500 level. Her previous Super 500 wins came from the 2018-19 Malaysia Masters and the 2019 India Open.

Ratchanok will return home for the BWF Super 300 Thailand Masters, which begins on Tuesday at the Hua Mark Indoor Stadium. It will be her first appearance in the home event after she won the inaugural edition in 2016.

The 25-year-old Thai is seeded second in the competition and will begin against a qualifier on Wednesday.
