Zheng and Sang also secured the winning point against Denmark in the final of the 2004 Thomas Cup, to clinch China's first men's world team title since 1990. Most of his international titles, however, have come in mixed doubles. Zheng won the 2002 French Open Zhang Yawen and the 2006 Hong Kong Open with Zhao Tingting. His other mixed doubles titles, all in partnership with doubles maestro Gao Ling, include the 2006 Asian Games, the 2007 China Masters, the prestigious All-England Championships in both 2007 and 2008; and the Japan (2007), German (2007), Korea (2007), Malaysia (2007), and Indonesia (2007, 2008) Opens. Zhang and Gao were silver medalists behind Indonesia's Nova Widianto and Lilyana Natsir at the 2007 BWF World Championships in Kuala Lumpur. They were upset in the round of 16 at the 2008 Beijing Olympics by former world champions Nathan Robertson and Gail Emms. Associated with Ma Jin, Zheng won the Mixed Doubles title at the 2010 BWF World championships.
