Taiwan’s Chan sisters claimed their third WTA Tour doubles title of the year at the Hong Kong Open
yesterday, while Caroline Wozniacki was victorious in the singles.
Chan Hao-ching and Chan Yung-jan took just 62 minutes to see off the challenge of British duo Naomi Broady and Heather Watson as they cruised to a 6-3, 6-1 victory.
The top seeds saved five of six break points and converted five of 14, winning 57 of the 95 points contested to seal their third title of the season after victories in Kaohsiung and Doha earlier this year.
“Although it is the end of the season and we are very tired, very happy this week with the smooth victory,” Chan Yung-jan wrote on Facebook.
“I want to congratulate our opponents. You have had a fantastic year, you are in the top five in the world for a reason and you were too good for us tonight, so well done,” Broady told BT Sport. [FULL STORY]
