Tseng's move to number one was front page news in Chinese Taipei,and hundreds of fans left messages of support on her Facebook page.

"Yeah, I think everybody got crazy. I got lots of interview after the world number one award. But you know I don't, I try to not put too much pressure on it and then just try to enjoy everything about this." Tseng Yani said.

Tseng realizes she carries a bullseye along with being ranked best in the world, but says unlike previous years, she now has the maturity to handle it.

"I think I just now learn to become comfortable with that because last year sometimes I would be leading and I didn't control myself. But this year I think I know how to win and how to be on the top and you know now I just want to enjoy it again and enjoy everything out here." Said Tseng.

Tseng is enjoying her time at the top for now...and is confident it won't be a short visit.
