Taipei, April 14 (CNA) Taiwan’s Tai Tzu-ying (戴資穎), the world’s top-ranked women’s singles badminton player, eased past Sayaka Sato of Japan on Friday to reach the semifinals of the 2017 World BWF Super Series Singapore Open Badminton Championship.

After beating the world No. 17 21-14, 21-19 in just 34 minutes, Tai, who has yet to lose in a women’s single event this year, said she was able to maintain her normal standard of play and hoped to continue the momentum in the next match.

Asked about being tested by Sato in the second game, Tai said she wasn’t thinking about that and simply wanted to steady herself and get the match over quickly.
