Table Tennis-Feng Tianwei continues her winning form

WOMENS SINGLES: Feng Tianwei continues her winning form

Singapore's Feng Tianwei maintained her winning ways of recent weeks to clinch the Women's Singles title at the Japan Open; in so doing she secured her second consecutive ITTF Pro Tour title and continued her rich vein of form.

Seeded no.1, at the final hurdle she beat the host nations Ai Fukuhara, the no.3 seed, in four straight games.

Feng Tianwei, won 11-8, 12-10, 11-9, 15-13.

It was yet another very impressive display by the Singaporean whose more powerful style of play, executed a short distance away from the table, overcame the fast close to the table attacking technique of the Japanese star.

Currently, Feng Tianwei is enjoying halcyon days; whatever she touches turns to gold.

Four weeks earlier she had reached the Women's Singles final at the Volkswagen China Open in Shenzhen, notably beating China's Liu Shiwen before losing to the latter's compatriot, the impressive Wen Jia.

Immediately after, in Shanghai, she beat both Feng Yalan and Guo Yan in the Volkswagen 2011 China versus World Team Challenge in Shanghai, then one week ago she secured the Women's Singles title at the KRA Korean Open in Incheon overcoming the host nations Moon Hyun Jung in the final.
