The Chan sisters advanced to the second round of the women’s doubles at the
US Open on Wednesday, but it was not such good news for fellow Taiwanese Chan Chin-wei, who crashed out of the first round at Flushing Meadows in New York.
Ninth seeds Chan Hao-ching and Chan Yung-jan eased past Alexandra Dulgheru of Romania and Christina McHale of the US 6-2, 6-4 in 1 hour, 15 minutes on Court 10 at the final Grand Slam of the year.
The Taiwanese sisters saved one of four break points and converted six of 10, winning 61 of the 104 points contested to advance to a second-round clash with German duo Mona Barthel and Laura Siegemund, who defeated fellow German Sabine Lisicki and Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic 6-2, 3-6, 6-2.
