Chan Yung-jan on Friday eased into the third round of the women’s doubles at Wimbledon, while fellow Taiwanese Chuang Chia-jung and Hsieh Su-wei exited on the grass courts at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in London.
Third seeds Chan and Martina Hingis took just 56 minutes to see off Russian duo Natela Dzalamidze and Veronika Kudermetova 6-1, 6-3 on Court 3.
The Taiwanese-Swiss pairing won the first five games and did not face a single break point, while converting four of seven to set up a third-round clash against either 13th seeds Kirsten Flipkens and Sania Mirza or British duo Naomi Broady and Heather Watson. [FULL STORY]
