Wu Jianqiu (Chinese: 吴健秋, born 1962) is a retired female badminton player from China.

Career

Wu was one of China's leading combination women's singles and doubles players in the first several years after her country joined the International Badminton Federation (now Badminton World Federation). She won the Danish Open women's singles in 1982 (the first of the two Danish Opens that were played that year). In 1983 she won the prestigious All-England Open women's doubles title with Xu Rong and was runner-up in the singles to fellow countrywoman Zhang Ailing. She also earned a bronze medal in women's doubles with Xu Rong at the 1983 IBF World Championships. In 1985 she won the Japan Open and a silver medal at the IBF World Championships (defeating the great Li Lingwei in the semifinals) in women's singles. Wu was a member of Chinese Uber Cup (women's international) teams which won world team championships in both 1984 and 1986.
