Golf: Taiwan fans rally behind dethroned Tseng

Fans of dethroned Taiwan golf queen Tseng Yani rallied behind her Monday, encouraging her to fight back and reclaim her world number one title a day after American Stacy Lewis toppled her from the top spot. Lewis claimed the title by firing a final-round eight-under par 64 at the LPGA Founders Cup to beat Japan's Ai Miyazato by three strokes while Tseng finished with a share of 59th place, 19 strokes off the pace.

Taiwan golf sensation Tseng Yani admitted she would almost be glad to be toppled from the "very lonely" spot of world number one and held out sympathy for her besieged men's counterpart Rory McIlroy. Tseng watched on Sunday as her two closest rivals in the rankings, Choi Na-Yeon and Stacy Lewis, finished second and first respectively at the HSBC Women's Champions in Singapore, slashing her lead to just 0.68 average points.
