Hsieh Su-wei advanced to the doubles final at the Hungarian Ladies Open yesterday,
while fellow Taiwanese Chan Hao-ching upstaged elder sister Chan Yung-jan on Thursday to reach the semi-finals of the doubles at the Dubai Tennis Championships.
In Budapest, fourth seeds Hsieh and Oksana Kalashnikova took just 60 minutes to see off the challenge of Serbian duo Aleksandra Krunic and Nina Stojanovic 6-2, 6-2.
The Taiwanese-Georgian pairing saved five of seven break points and converted six of 14 to dance to a final against either top seeds Timea Babos and Lucie Safarova or Arina Rodionova and Galina Voskoboeva, who are due to play their semi-final today.
In the United Arab Emirates on Wednesday, fifth seeds Chan Hao-ching and Yaroslava Shvedova stunned French top seeds Caroline Garcia and Kristina Mladenovic 7-5, 3-6, 10-3 in 1 hour, 26 minutes. [FULL STORY]
