    Ratchanok sets sights on Superseries Finals

    The world's second-ranked player's ultimate goals are to claim the top spot and win an Olympic gold medal.

    However, she has set her sights on qualifying for the BWF Superseries Finals to be held in Malaysia in December.

    To reach the tournament which offers a total purse of at least US$500,000, Ratchanok must be in the top eight of the BWF World Superseries Standings.

    The 18-year-old is currently 11th with the top-ranked player being India's Saina Nehwal.

    So far Ratchanok has received about 5.9 million in cash and gifts from government agencies and private companies.

    After playing badminton with Kamronwit at the Metropolitan Police Bureau headquarters, Ratchanok said she had declined the police force's offer for her to become a policewoman.

    "I want to focus on playing badminton to reach my goals of becoming the world No.1 and an Olympic champion," she said.

    "I also want to concentrate on my studies.

    "After my graduation, I may consider entering the police force."

    She needed the money to buy a house for her family so don't worry, she will be most focussed
    and single minded in her pursuit to be the best, thats why she turned down the police offer.
    Her no 1 enemy will be injuries if she play too many tournaments.

    These statistics are actually not quite right. Jang Hye Ock was almost 3 months younger when she won the women's doubles title in May, 1995. Badzine, Wikipedia, and the Star all have it right, now, as does the New Straits Times.

    However, Ratchanok is still the youngest singles World Champion and that is still amazing.

    And she will hold this amazing record of being the youngest world champion for
    a very long time because its almost impossible to be world junior champion at 14
    and repeat the feat 3 times and then become the world champ at the first attempt.
    Such huge undertakings done with a smile most of the times!

    Correct, but you can go farther than that. No need to specify 'woman'.

    Incorrect. That's going too far. She is the youngest singles world champion, for either gender!

    Incorrect. See above

    By the way, it wasn't exactly her first attempt. She played in London in 2011.

    Anyone knows who was coaching Ratcha during the WC? It was the usual old man coaching the Thai team.

    Whoever it is, Thailand supposedly has a small budget for their national training so it is a huge deal when they succeed given the circumstances they have to face!
