Tai Tzu-ying (Chinese .mw-parser-output

/.mw-parser-output

Dài Zīyĭng; * June 20, 1994 in Kaohsiung) is a Taiwanese badminton player.

Career

Tai Tzu-ying won bronze at the 2009 East Asian Games in women’s singles. In the same year she finished second at the Vietnam Open. She also finished second at the Singapore Super Series 2010.

Since then she steadily climbed the world rankings and reached the top 10 for the first time at the end of January 2013 with her success at the Malaysian Open. After some tournament successes she took over the world ranking number 1 from the Spaniard Carolina Marin for the first time at the beginning of December 2016. At the end of April, she celebrated her first title at the 2017 Asia Championships, winning her sixth tournament and 21st consecutive match at Superseries level, distancing herself further and further from the competition.

However, her Olympic appearances in 2012 and 2016 both ended in the round of 16, and she has also failed to medal at World Championships so far.

Sporting successes[1]

In her career so far, Tai Tzu-ying has won many of the most prestigious tournaments, including the All England Open three times, as well as the BWF Super Series Finals twice and the BWF World Tour Finals once. Tai Tzu-ying is the first and so far only women’s singles player to have earned over one million US dollars in prize money[2]. Currently, her total prize money is over US$1.5 million (as of January 2021)[3].

The following table shows all podium finishes at BWF tournaments, as well as all finishes at Olympic Games, World Championships, Asian Games, Asian Championships and Super Series or World Tour Finals.
