Typical CTC, nets, lifts, jumps smash.
If I didn't know it's the Chinese Taipei Grand Prix Gold, I would've thought CTC has just won the World Championships, the way he celebrates, drops his racquet, arms held aloft, yelling in delight, looking toward the heavens.
Never seen CTC with that over the top expressive emotion after winning a match, just knew that this was only the second Taipei MS player ever won this tournament. The first was in 90's and he was actually naturalized citizen. No wonder CTC is extremely excited with this result.
This Qiao Bin is surprisingly goood. We'll see him more in the future. Just realized he is older than Xue Song.
The TPE pair is always trying to keep the shuttle flat and fast.
Li Junhui, tall and skinny, but he packs a punch,a hard-hitter, and very fast.
That was close
China players scoop three titles through doubles category and the host celebrates two victories in singles discipline. Last tie was the most interesting final, Li JH/Liu YC won over Chen HL/Wang CL narrowly in thrilling deciding games, 24-22 despite TPE pair saved two match points.
Another runner-up ending for Wang Shixian in this season after GER GP Gold and All England, she couldn't seal first game despite led 20-18, the top-seed performance declined drastically to produce a series of uncharacteristic errors and the scoreline ended with big margin for Tai TY winning, 21-6. Chou TC redeemed his final defeat last year to top podium this time, pretty good effort by Qiao Bin to balance his higher-ranked opponent.
Huang DP/Zhong QX stunned Luo twin sisters, a maiden title for world # 127 as they only played together in three tournaments, we'll see whether they'll be a permanent pair in future or not. The talented Zheng/Chen are unstoppable to nail mixed doubles crown, second GP Gold title in 2016.
CTC deserve to do that celebration since he become the nexy TPE MS who won a title in Taipei GPG after so long time Fung Permadi won a title in this home venue.
That he deserved it was never in question. Just that I find it amusing the way he celebrated.
When Lin Dan won his sixth All England title, he was far too subdued and we all know why.
Chou Tien Chen was brought to tears after claiming a dream first Yonex Chinese Taipei Open title in front of his own fans.
And once again, it the first MS title won by TPE in their home. Back in 1999, Fung Permadi won MS title there for TPE but Fung Permadi was INA which playing for TPE flag.
Don't compare to sixth AE title of LD. You can compare it with Ivanov/Sozonov win in AE by the way.
