Chuang Chia-jung cruised into the quarter-finals of the women’s doubles at the Aegon Open in
Nottingham, England, on Tuesday, while fellow Taiwanese Chan Chin-wei had to battle through a super tiebreak to advance.
Chuang and Olga Savchuk defeated Gabriela Dabrowski of Canada and Alicja Rosolska of Poland 6-3, 6-1 in just 53 minutes at the Nottingham Tennis Centre.
The Taiwanese-Ukrainian duo saved three of four break-point chances and converted five of nine in winning 56 of the 92 points contested to set up a quarter-final against either second-seeded cross-strait pairing Chan Yung-jan and Zheng Jie or Casey Dellacqua of Australia and Darija Jurak of Croatia, who were due to play their first-round match late yesterday.
