    Yonex Chinese Taipei Open is coming up next week.

    As the first seed and home player, can defending champion Cheng Shao Chieh make it the third time?

    Let's review the final match last year.
    In the final, Cheng won the first set 21-11 and lost the second 24-26. In the final determining set, Cheng’s mobility was affected by a leg injury and she even fell behind her contender by 5 points. However, after she requested a time-out and took a short break, she scored 9 points in a row to win 21-17 in the final set.
    After finishing the competition, Cheng broke down in tears and needed help to leave the court.

    Watch this one of the most remarkable match of Cheng Shao Chieh :

    Yes, she can. My money will be on her for the singles title this time.

    Too bad the silver medalist of 2011 WC surprisingly stopped by her team mate Pai Hsiao Ma at R/16, 13-21 / 17-21. What an upset as Cheng Shao Chieh has pretty good performance lately...

    Yes, that's the shock of the tournament so far indeed. I lost my money!
