SEMI-FINALS - WS : Tai Tzu Ying qualified

Today, Tai Tzu Ying won her battle in three games, and she will try to defend her title tomorrow against the Japanese Yamaguchi in the French badminton open.

Tai Tzu Ying still standing

The Taiwanese Tai Tzu Ying, number 1 in the world ranking, is into final here in Paris for the 2nd consecutive time. She beat the young twenty-year-old Chinese CHEN Yufei. The world no 1 had to fight to earn her spot in the Final. Indeed, she lost the 1st set 21-18 because of easy mistakes. She rapidly came back and took the advantage to win the next 2 games 21-12 21-14.

Tai Tzu Ying showed some inconsistency today, as she managed to win 6 consecutive points then losing the 5 next points. Despite this, she played really well and she will try to defend her title tomorrow. 2018 is a great year for her as she has already won 5 tournaments. Will she be the 2018 French Open winner ? The answer will come tomorrow.

2017 French Open final remake

What a match to conclude the day ! Akane Yamaguchi and He Bingjiao met today for a spot in semi Finals. And it was a real marathon !

The two girls gave some amazing performance for the last match of the day. It was definitely one of the tightest match the crowd has ever seen so far in the french tournament. After 1 game all (22-20 19-21), both players gave their best on the court to capture a spot in the final. Every rally was unbelievable. The Japanese, number 2 in the world ranking, managed to conclude the game 22-20 19-21 21-19. She will meet Tai Tzu Ying tomorrow for a remake of last year final.
