Singapore Open - Tai Tzu Ying with new record!
The Super Series tournament "OUE Singapore Open" was held in Singapore from the 11th to 16th April.
Just a short time after the big success at the Malaysia Open, Tai Tzu Ying tried to generate a new sensation. The fully equipped VICTOR player challenged again a dream final against Carolina Marin. Prior to this the Spanish could win the semi final against the VICTOR player Sung Ji Hyun with 21-9 21-12 and was ready for the revenge for the past loss of the final. But Tai Tzu Ying had other ideas and won the final with 21-15 21-15 for her 5th Super Series title in a row. No other women's singles player has won 5 Super Series titles in a row. Next to this success, she has an unbeaten record in 2017 with 15 of 15 wins and did not drop any set during the last week! The current performance of Tai Tzu Ying is impressive and we are looking forward to further great results.
The Korean Lee Dong Keun could reach the semi final in the men's singles competition. He played against the Indian Sai Praneeth B. for a place in the final. But the VICTOR player Lee Dong Keun did not find his line and lost with 6-21 8-21. It was his best Super Series result so far.
