It was also the first singles final of his career.
Burhanuddin had a fantastic run in Bahrain with an all-win record in his group, followed by victories over Tarun Tarun in the Round of 32, Shin Kyung Hwan (quarterfinals) and Fredy Setiawan (semifinals).
It was a good event for Malaysia as they finished with three titles. Cheah Liek Hou won his men’s singles Standing Upper (SU5) final over Indonesia’s Suryo Nugroho, and then partnered Muhammad Fareez Anuar for the men’s doubles crown.
There were few surprises in other categories. China, who returned to international competition at the Thailand Para Badminton International earlier this month, continued to dominate, with as many as 10 titles.
