Taiwan’s Chan sisters were on Saturday edged out in a tight doubles final at the Aegon International in Eastbourne, England, in a blow before they begin their Wimbledon campaign this week.

Chan Hao-ching and Chan Yung-jan fell to a 5-7, 7-6 (7/4), 10-6 defeat to Darija Jurak and Anastasia Rodionova in just short of two hours on the grass courts at Devonshire Park.

The second seeds saved two of seven break points and converted six of 12, winning 85 of the 169 points contested, but it was not enough as the Croatian-Australian duo claimed the title, which the Taiwanese duo were trying to reclaim after their victory back in 2014.

“Unfortunately, we did not win the final at Eastbourne, but we still had a great week here. All the matches we played will help get us ready for Wimbledon — next stop London,” Chan Yung-jan wrote on Facebook.     [FULL  STORY]
