A positive display from Sun who has genuine claims for the title in Singapore as she despatched Cheng with clinical efficiency.

My coach understands me well and knew when to step in to realign my focus, as we saw in the fourth game with the time-out. My previous defeats against Cheng gave me plenty of motivation and I prepared well and was able to play my normal game.
The match didn’t go as I expected. After going two games down, I gave it my all and managed to get back a set but it wasn’t enough.
