BWF profile

Zhao Tingting (simplified Chinese: 赵婷婷; traditional Chinese: 趙婷婷; pinyin: Zhào Tíngtíng; born 28 November 1982) is a Chinese badminton player from Nantong, Jiangsu.[1]

Career

A doubles specialist, Zhao has often been a "utility player" on China's national team, winning international tournaments with a variety of compatriots who typically partner someone else. She has won women's doubles at the Denmark (2002, 2004) and Thailand (2003) Opens with Wei Yili; the French (2002), China (2008), and Hong Kong (2008) Opens with Zhang Yawen; the Swiss Open (2007) and Asian Championships (2007) with Yang Wei; and at the China Open (2007) with Gao Ling. She has also captured mixed doubles titles at the Thailand (2003) and Denmark (2004) Opens with Chen Qiqiu, and at the Hong Kong Open (2006) with Zheng Bo.

Zhao was a women's doubles silver medalist with Wei Yili at the 2003 IBF World Championships in Birmingham, England, dropping the final to compatriots Gao Ling and Huang Sui, and a mixed doubles bronze medalist with Chen Qiqiu at the same tournament. At the 2004 Olympics in Athens she just missed a medal by finishing fourth in women's doubles with Wei Yili and losing in the quarterfinals of mixed doubles with Chen Qiqiu. Zhao was not selected to compete in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, a victim of China's great depth in women's badminton and rules that limit the number of Olympic entries from any one country. However, 2009 proved to be her most successful year as Zhao won both the prestigious All-England and BWF World Championships in women's doubles with Zhang Yawen. With these achievements, she reportedly retired from the Chinese team at the end of the 2009 season.
