Taiwanese Tai Tzu Ying broke Carolina Marin’s ‘bubble’ by beating the Spanish woman in the final of the Badminton World Tour Final by 14-21, 21-8 and 21-19 in 67 minutes of match.
Marin, winner of the first two tournaments beating Tai in the final, could not close the circle against the world number one in a final in which both showed that they are the two best in the world at the moment.
In the first set, Marin came out very aggressive ready to get the title of teacher that was missing from her record and Tai could not stop the Huelva gale.
The second set was strange, in the sense that the Taiwanese quickly found herself with important advantages on the scoreboard and Marin let the set go without the fight that is characteristic of it.
Everything changed from the second sleeve, when number 1 found cracks in the wall planted by the Andalusian. Tzu Ying brought out her repertoire of best shots and stopped Caro’s streak in her tracks, who impatiently wanted to win the points on the fast track and made too many unforced errors. In the change of side the gap was already insurmountable (3-11), so Marin got carried away to face the last set with the changed chip.
In the third and final set, Tai and Marin gave a demonstration of quality, dedication, struggle, passion and desire for victory. After a dominating start from Tai, 3-0, Marin took out the great champion inside her to equalize a score and maintain the parity until the break, 10-11.
Carolina Marin, in the resumption, amassed a partial of 5-0, going from 10 equal to 10-15. Tai reacted and returned to equalize the score, which reached the end with a tie at 19 and the tension on the track soared.
The last two points went to the Taiwanese player and the title escaped from the string of Carolina Marin’s racket who won two titles and fell in an epic final. That, however, reinforces the Spanish in morals in the face of this important year in which her objectives are the Tokyo Olympic Games and the Huelva World Cup.
