"It is like a dream come true," Indian badminton ace Saina Nehwal said on Sunday after defeating China's Shixian Wang to win the Hong Kong Open Super Series.

"I am very happy that I am finishing the year like this. It is like a dream come true," Saina told TimesNow television channel.

She said it was really important to win the Hong Kong Open after the Asian Games where she failed to make a mark.

Saina defeated Chinese champion Shixian 15-21, 21-16, 21-17 to claim her career's fourth Super Series badminton title and the third of the year.

She said that after losing the first game, she became confident "because I was moving well on the court... I knew she would hit some strokes... The third was set was very crucial.

"I was very, very confident throughout. I was always confident after the second game."

Saina said she wanted to prove herself. "Winning this match was very important for me. I am really happy."
