Taiwanese shuttler and world No. 1 women’s singles player, Tai Tzu Ying, started her title defense at DANISA DENMARK 2019 presented by VICTOR with a win in two straight games against Nitchaon Jindapol from Thailand.
The 25-year-old women’s singles, Tai Tzu Ying, won her first match at DANISA DENMARK OPEN 2019 presented by VICTOR without any trouble. She faced the unseeded Nitchaon Jindapol from Thailand and is now one step closer to defend her title from last year.
The Taiwanese superstar started out shaky in first game making some unforced errors. At the same time, Nitchaon Jindapol fought bravely until 15-15, where Tai Tzu Ying stepped up her game and won six straight points ending the first set 21-15.
– I am always a bit slow in the beginning of the game. I think that it is a thing that I should improve in the future, Tai Tzu Ying said after the match.
In the second set, Tai Tzu Ying managed to remove her unforced errors and with her elegant technique she made it very hard for her opponent, forcing her to make mistakes. Ying was in control from the beginning taking a considerable lead 7-1. Being superior throughout the rest of the set, the Taiwanese took home the triumph, 21-9.
– I feel that my opponent made more mistakes in the second set. I did not change much, she just made too many mistakes, explains Tai Tzu Ying, who indeed felt the support from the audience in Odense.
– I always feel good playing here in Denmark. The audience gave me so much support, I really enjoy playing here, she says.
Thursday, Tai Tzu Ying will continue her journey to defend her title from last year’s DANISA DENMARK OPEN presented by VICTOR.
Her second-round showdown will be against Canada’s Michelle Li.
