Top draw performances lead Ding Ning to world rankings summit

Ding Ning has returned to the World no.1 position in the women’s world rankings list for the first time in over a year following a strong day at the office for the “Queen of Hearts.”

Starting with a solid outing against Saki Shibata (11-3, 11-6, 7-11, 11-7, 11-5), Ding Ning pulled off another convincing result later in the day against Cheng I-Ching (11-6, 11-7, 11-9, 11-1) to reach the semi-finals of the Women’s Singles category.

Top seed Xu Xin departs!

Following in the footsteps of the Women’s Singles event which saw Wang Manyu exit at the quarter-finals stage, rather astonishingly the top seed of the Men’s Singles draw also bid his farewells on day two.

Two-time Grand Finals champion but Xu Xin won’t be adding a third to his collection in 2018, losing out to fellow Chinese competitor Lin Gaoyuan in a fantastic six games duel (11-3, 9-11, 13-11, 11-13, 11-2, 11-9) to send the latter player through to the semi-finals for the second successive year.
