In the afternoon session of the final day, the women's singles final witnessed a rematch of the classic showdown from Tokyo 2020. World No. 4 and Olympic champion Chen Meng defeated world champion Sun Yingsha 4-2.

In the third set, both players were locked in a neck-and-neck battle, with the score tied at 4-4 early on. Chen managed to break the deadlock with a four-point run to claim the set 11-8.

In the fourth set, Chen showed unwavering dominance and raced to a 5-1 lead. Although Sun launched a comeback bid towards the end of the set to level the score at 9-9, Chen Meng kept her composure to secure an 11-9 win.

Sun launched a fierce offensive in the fifth set and secured an 11-6 victory to reduce the deficit to 3-2.

In the sixth set, Sun struggled with errors, allowing Chen to take a 5-1 lead. Despite Sun's best efforts to fend off four match points, Chen took advantage of a crucial opportunity with a powerful serve to earn the 11-8 victory.

In the men's singles final, Chinese top player Wang Chuqin faced German Patrick Franziska. Wang secured the win with a 4-2 scoreline to take his third title of the tournament.

Wang dominated the opening exchanges, winning the first three sets with scores of 11-2, 11-7 and 11-5. Despite a resilient fightback from Franziska, who claimed the next two sets with scores of 12-8 and 12-10, Wang regained control in the sixth set and secured an 11-6 victory.

May 11 coincided with Wang Chuqin's 24th birthday. After his victory, Wang Chuqin made a “3” gesture with his hand, meaning he had won three titles. The Saudi Arabian tournament organizers also prepared a birthday cake for Wang Chuqin, who celebrated with a cheering crowd.
