    Before the 2015 Singapore Open was concluded, there was a noticeable shift of power in the women’s singles category in international badminton. How dire is it for China in the medium to longer term?

    Of course China’s Sun Yu (pictured) finally won the 2015 OUE Singapore Open title after saving 3 match points against Tai Tzu Ying of Chinese Taipei. However, prior to this, Chinese players had been unable to take a women’s singles title in the six Superseries events previous to the Singapore Open. Will Sun Yu be the one to salvage China’s pride in a discipline they have come to view as their own, with four straight Olympic golds and 8 straight world titles at the start of the millennium?
