World No. 1 Tai Tzu Ying restated that the Tokyo Olympics will be her last major tournament. This will be her third Olympic Games, after London 2012 and Rio 2016.

Tai: “This Olympics will be my last major tournament before I hang up my racket. I have yet to decide if I will continue to play after the Olympics. I have not made a firm decision.

“I feel that I’ve aged and suffer from more injuries. It’s more about my recovery, I also have more niggling aches and pains. I didn’t used to feel like this. I usually recovered after a short while but now I take longer in rehab.”

Tai has never won a medal at the Olympics or the World Championships in her career and will be looking to break the jinx this year.
