Taiwan’s Chan Hao-ching advanced to the second round of the women’s doubles at
Wimbledon on Wednesday as her elder sister, Chan Yung-jan, as well as Chuang Chia-jung and Chan Chin-wei all crashed out, while Hsieh Su-wei fell to the sixth seed in the second round of the women’s singles.
Chan Hao-ching and Alison van Uytvanck cruised past German duo Julia Goerges and Carina Witthoeft 6-2, 6-2 in 56 minutes on Court 4 at the All England Club in London.
The Taiwanese-Belgian pairing saved the only break point they faced and converted four of 11, winning 61 of the 98 points contested to advance to a second-round clash with Johanna Konta and Maria Sanchez yesterday after the British-American duo defeated lucky losers Misaki Doi of Japan and Stephanie Vogt of Liechtenstein 6-3, 7-6 (7/5) in their first-round clash.
