Despite elder sister Chan Yung-jan suffering flu symptoms, the Chan sisters cruised into the quarter-finals of the Qatar Open on Wednesday, while Agnieszka Radwanska avoided the fate of many of the top seeds in the singles by advancing to the last eight.
Fourth seeds Chan Hao-ching and Chan Yung-jan took just 51 minutes to dispatch fellow Taiwanese Chan Chin-wei and Katalin Marosi of Hungary 6-2, 6-1 in the second round of the doubles at the International Tennis and Squash Complex in Doha.
