Tai Tzu Ying: The Queen

1 in BWF rankings for the women's singles discipline, holding the World No. She is the reigning Olympic Champion, three-time World Champion, four-time European Champion and the former World's No. 1 title for a record number of 66 weeks.[1][3] Widely regarded as one of the greatest female athletes in the badminton circuit, she holds the distinction of having won a medal in almost every BWF tournament, along with the consecutive golds at the Olympics, the World Championships and the European Championships.[4][5] She has become the World Champion in women's singles three times, winning in 2014, 2015 and 2018. Carolina Mara Marn Martn (born 15 June 1993) is a Spanish professional badminton player.

At the Asian Games, Ratchanok made it to the quarter-final stage before losing out to Saina Nehwal. At the beginning of the year, Ratchanok participated in and won the Malaysia Masters Super 500 tournament, beating Akane Yamaguchi in the semi-finals, and Tai Tzu Ying in the finals, with 24-22 in the third set. 8. She then proceeded to reach the semi-finals of both the Indonesia Masters Super 500 and the India Open Super 500, losing out to Saina Nehwal[22] and Pusarla V. Sindhu. She qualified for the HSBC World Tour Finals, where she lost in the semi-finals to Pusarla V. She finished the year at world no. She then proceeded to make it to the finals of the Yonex Sunrise Hong Kong Open, losing to Nozomi Okuhara 19-21 22-24. Sindhu respectively.

She is seeded 5 and her path to success looks very tough: Zhang Beiwen in R16 and possibly TTY in the quarters. I think thats going to be the secret of success for her; when shes confident and plays like that she can become unstoppable. It was great to see a refreshed player getting her game back. I love her style when she unleashes her inner badminton beast and dominates the court with her aggressive smashes and drives. Sindhu is renowned as a big match player and this skill is a huge advantage in the top tournaments. By her own standards 2019 has been quite quiet but July saw her spring into life. Prediction: QF owing to hard draw.

Who desires this title the most? Its always fascinating to watch these tournaments unfold: there are dramas along the way as the intensity builds and we get swept along by the momentum of the games. From a personal viewpoint I would love to see the final contested by Ratchanok May and Tai Tzu Ying in front of the Chinese crowd. May can dig out wins when all seems lost, and TTY can dazzle us all.

Firstly badminton is a demanding sport so it is hard to sustain excellence (Momota is exceptional in MS). As Gregoria hasnt been able to break into the world top ten yet, the way the seeding system works means she comes up against big-name players early on in a tournament. I dont think so. Secondly its a clich but its true we are in the middle of a golden generation as far as Womens Singles is concerned, so the level of play is high. This is a difficult bind to escape. Akane was dumped out of the World Championships in the R1, CHEN Yufei blows hot and cold and TTY is in the middle of a dip in form. If we consider any of the senior women players in the top 20 this year there isnt a single one who we can say consistently wins.

She needs to forget about the compatriot competition and get on with her own game. Its not impossible, tournament play in the emotional heat of the Olympics does weird things to some athletes and she needs to be ready to grasp every opportunity now to seal her right to compete at the top of her sport. Being the best out of those three will not be good enough to get on the podium in Tokyo 2020. Given the quality of the opposition it is going to take a monumental effort to get to where she aspires to be but if you want it youve got to sweat it.

This discipline is full of talent and unlike the mens singles its not dominated by one person so it will be an intriguing contest right from the beginning. The parity of ability amongst the top seeds means that being able to deal with tournament pressure will have a huge part to play. Who will relish the fight? All tournaments offer a rising intensity as players progress through the rounds: physical endurance can be sapped as well as the emotional drain of competition.

She finished the year as world number 9. She qualified for the Super Series Finals and lost in the semi-finals. However, at 2012 London Olympics quarter-final match with Wang Xin, despite leading 2117 and 16-9 in the second game, she failed to close the match and eventually lost 2117, 1821, 1421. In 2012, Ratchanok, at 16 years of age, was awarded the Best Female Athlete Award in Thailand after winning the world junior title for three successive years. She reached the finals of the SCG Thailand Open 2012 but lost to Saina Nehwal 1921 2115 2110 in the finals.[3] She entered the finals of a Super Series tournament for the first time in 2012 China Open Super Series Premier but lost to Li Xuerui 12-21, 9-21. Ratchanok's biggest goal is to win the Olympic gold medal.

This low profile has been caused by a Gold famine (3 years up to Korea) and her compatriots success. Seeded 7. Prediction QF. Winner of the Korea Open including saving 4 match points against Ratchanok HE Bing Jiao is often an overlooked player on the tour. Its feasible that her Korea Open win will be the beginning of a medal rush.
