The third seeded Indian pair, who had reached the finals of US Open and Dutch Open, finally lay their hands on a grand prix title when they defeated Bodin and Nipitphon 22-20, 21-18
in a 35-minute battle at the Centro Deportivo Chapultepec AC on Sunday.
     
"They're the number 1 pair of Thailand so it was tough match for us as we had lost to them in the last tournament (K&D Graphics Grand Prix in California). But we played really good and it was our day," said Manu.
     
"We played without any pressure and there were no unforced errors from our side. Basically we played amazing badminton. It was one of the best matches ever," he added. It was a gritty performance from the Indian duo as they never gave up in the face of adversity despite falling behind a couple of times during the opening game.
