Taiwanese table tennis star Cheng I-ching wins first WTT women’s singles title

2024-01-29

Taiwan table tennis star Cheng I-ching has won women’s singles title at the WTT Star Contender Goa in India. Cheng was able to win the championship by beating her German counterpart Nina Mittelham four 4-0 in an exciting final match that she says was very hard-won.

For the second year in a row, Cheng I-ching made it all the way to the women’s singles final of the WTT Star Contender Goa, where she faced Nina Mittelham from Germany. This year’s final started on a good note for the Taiwanese star, with Cheng winning the first game 11-8.

Mittelham took the first three points to start the second game, but Cheng found her footing and was able to come back and win the game. The third game was a tightly-contested affair, with Cheng once again coming back from behind. Mittelham even had three chances to win the third game, yet Cheng tied the score each time and eventually won the penultimate game 17-15.

In the crucial final game, Mittelham scored first, but then Cheng went on a 6-0 run. In the match’s final point, the German’s return missed the end of the table, resulting in Cheng winning her first-ever WTT women’s singles title.

Cheng said that this championship was no easy feat. In addition to a hip injury, Cheng also suffered a right knee injury at the Asian Games in Hangzhou. She was only able to compete in the WTT final after taking six painkillers and bandaging up her hip. Cheng thanked her team for the win, adding that she had also put in a lot of hard work. The win has boosted Cheng’s world ranking from No. 18 to No. 11.
