Reigning Asian champion Tai Tzu Ying reveals she did not target the world number one title, but she is glad that her numero uno status is a result of hard work.

The 22-year-old Chinese Taipei shuttler is the undisputed queen of Women's singles badminton now, having won six titles on the trot ever since she became the first Taiwanese shuttler to win the Hong Kong Open last year. Tai went on to win the BWF World Superseries Finals in Dubai last December, after which she opened 2017 with her maiden All England Championships title.

Titles at Malaysia Superseries Premier and Singapore Superseries followed Tai and on both occasions she defeated reigning Olympic champion Carolina Marin in the title match.
