Taiwan’s Chan Hao-ching and Chan Yung-jan yesterday crushed the second seeds to win
their second straight round-robin match at the WTA Finals in Singapore and stand on the verge of a spot in Saturday’s semi-finals.
The third-seeded Taiwanese sisters took just 71 minutes to complete a crushing 6-2, 6-2 victory over Bethanie Mattek-Sands of the US and Lucie Safarova of the Czech Republic to go top of the White Group.
The Chan sisters saved all three break points they faced and converted four of seven, winning 60 of the 106 points contested to maintain a 100 percent record at the season-ending tournament.
