TIANJIN, July 30 -- World junior champion Sun Yingsha blanked Zhu Yuling 4-0 (11-9, 11-4, 11-8, 11-8) at the final of the 2019 China Sports Industry Cup National Table Tennis Championships here on Monday.

It was the first such win for the 18-year-old Sun at the national competition level.

Accomplished youth player Sun Yingsha was the champion at both the 2018 Youth Olympic Games and the 2017 World Junior Championships. However her senior record is no less impressive, with Sun winning the first senior tournament she participated in, the 2017 Japan Open. She also has 7 double's titles to her name.

The 24-year-old Zhu has won 5 ITTF World Tour titles and reached the world number 1 ranking in December 2017. She also has 5 doubles titles to her name.

Sun, playing on behalf of the Hebei team, was more proactive while Zhu Yuling was conservative and inflexible.

In the first game, the two sides were closely matched, but Sun managed to bag 4 points in a row to win. With one point in hand, Sun played more freely in the second game and eased to win the second game 11-4.

Sun faced a more aggressive Zhu in the third game and the scores were once leveled at 8-8 before Sun steadied herself to claw three points in a row. In the fourth game, Sun dominated throughout to win the title.
