Singapore’s Feng Tianwei captured her eighth Commonwealth Games title and third women’s singles gold after pulling off a remarkable comeback to defeat compatriot Zeng Jian here.

The 35-year-old three-time Olympic medallist looked all at sea when Zeng swept to a three-game lead at the National Exhibition Centre.

But Feng used all her experience to claw her way back as the match started to slip through Zeng’s grasp.

Feng turned the final on its head as she recovered to win 6-11, 5-11, 8-11, 11-4, 11-6, 11-8, 11-5.

"It’s not easy to fight back after trailing 3-0 but I did not give up," said Feng who struggled to hold back tears on the podium.

"I fought for every point.

"At the end, I couldn’t believe I had won."

It is Feng’s second gold of Birmingham 2022 after winning the team crown.

Feng also won both at Delhi 2010 and Glasgow 2014.
