Taiwan’s Chan Hao-ching on Saturday was eyeing her second doubles title of the season when she advanced to the final of the Aegon Classic in Birmingham, England.
Chan and Zhang Shuai took just 59 minutes to see off US duo Raquel Atawo and Christina McHale 6-2, 6-3 in their semi-final on the grass courts at the Edgbaston Priory Club.
The Taiwanese-Chinese pairing did not face a single break point on their serve and converted four of eight to advance to the final against Australian fourth seeds Ashleigh Barty and Casey Dellacqua, who were handed a walkover in their semi-final against Sania Mirza of India and Coco Vandeweghe of the US.
Chan claimed her first title of the season when she won the Taiwan Open with elder sister Chan Yung-jan in Taipei in February. [FULL STORY]
