"I did my preparations really well and it all paid off during the process of the matches," Chen Yufei said after thrashing Tunjung 21-7, 21-16 to get Team China off to a flying start.

"I will score my own 80 points during this tournament," said Chen Yufei, who didn't drop a set in all four matches she played during China's title run in Chengdu.

"I still had a couple of problems, though, that I will have to work on, and I didn't get to play all the strongest opponents this time. Overall, I am quite satisfied with my performances," said the 26-year-old, who's represented China at the Cup tournament for four editions since her debut in 2018.

Following the flying start, China's world No. 1 doubles pair Chen Qingchen and Jia Yifan produced an even more dominating 21-11, 21-8 rout of Indonesia's Siti Fadia Silva Ramadhanti and Ribka Sugiarto in 39 minutes to take a comfortable 2-0 lead in the best-of-five team final.

China's second-ranked singles player, He Bingjiao, overcame a first-set scare to defeat Ester Nurumi. Tri Wardoyo went 10-21, 21-15, and 21-17 in the third rubber to clinch the host's golden finish and send the rousing crowd at Chengdu's Hi-Tech Zone Sports Center into a frenzy.

"When we step on the court, we always believe in ourselves that we are the best," Chen Qingchen said of the team's surging confidence.
