Taipei, July 10 (CNA) The National Badminton Team Championships, the first competitive event for many players in four months, started in Taipei Thursday, with Taiwan's top two male players winning their opening matches.

World No. 2 Chou Tien-chen (周天成), who plays for a team sponsored by Taiwan Cooperative Bank, won his first singles game at the event by beating Land Bank's Kan Chao-yu (甘超宇, world No. 498) 21-15, 21-6.

Chou last played in an international event at the YONEX All England Open in London where he reached the final of the men's singles in mid-March, before the World Badminton Federation suspended all scheduled events.

Since then, Chou said he has spent more time training due to the lack of competition and a new part of his regimen is spending two days a week with an athletics coach.    [FULL  STORY]
