Tai wins first badminton's All England Open title for Taiwan
London, March 12 (CNA) Tai Tzu-ying, the world's top woman badminton player, on Sunday became the first player from Taiwan to win an All England Open title, beating Ratchanok Intanon of Thailand in two games 21-16, 22-20.
Tai came from behind in Game 2 after her opponent, who led almost all the way in the game, missed the game point at 20-18.
In the first game, the 22-year-old ace clinched five consecutive points after the two were tied at 16-16. Having trailed by 16-12, the world No. 7 player managed to catch up but Tai broke away to take Game 1.
It was Tai's first final in the Yonex All England Open Badminton Championships that began in 1989. Her pervious best in the US$600,000 event was a place in the semi-finals.
"I've been here several times and I'm very happy to have won the title with so many people cheering me on," she told reporters. "I'm really very happy."
Tai won the title and US$45,000 in prize money some four months after becoming the world's top women's singles badminton player in December 2016.
