As the most successful women's program in badminton at the Olympics, Chinese female shuttlers have racked up 10 gold medals — both singes and doubles combined — at the Games since the sport's debut in 1992.

In recent years, however, its dominance has been challenged by its East Asian neighbors.

Now, with Chen still at her best and the country's second-ranked singles ace He Bingjiao tested and improved at the Uber Cup, the Chinese women's contingent, which also boasts world No 1 doubles pair Chen Qingchen and Jia Yifan, looks primed for Paris.

Chen Yufei got the host's final against Indonesia off to a flying start, conquering 9th-ranked Gregoria Mariska Tunjung, 21-7, 21-16, to complete the opening singles rubber in just 38 minutes.
