Their final opponents are the South Korea's duo Jeon Jihee/Yang Haeun. Ding and Zhu finished the final 11-9, 11-5, 4-11, 11-5.
"I was so nervous at the beginning, I wanted to bring out my best performance for my supporters, but I didn't make it. It's a pity," said Yang Haeun.
"I am glad to win the title, I hope to improve our cooperation if there is a chance to work with Ding in the future," said Zhu.
