The Taiwanese 27-year-old, who lost the Thailand Open final to Spain’s Carolina Marin last year, was off to a fast start as she sped into a ninepoint lead in the first game against China’s world number four Chen and took it 21-15.

Chen, who was part of the Chinese women’s team which was narrowly defeated by South Korea in last week’s Uber Cup final in Bangkok, forced the match to a decider.

But Tai quickly opened up a seven-point lead and rode the momentum to claim victory.

Malaysia’s world number six Lee Zii Jia faces China’s Li Shifeng in the men’s singles final later on Sunday.
