The Chan sisters crashed out of the second round of the women’s doubles at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, California, on Monday, the second seeds losing a day after the shock defeat of top seeds Martina Hingis and Sania Mirza.
Chan Hao-ching and Chan Yung-jan fell to a 7-6 (7/3), 6-3 defeat to US duo Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Coco Vandeweghe in 1 hour, 30 minutes.
The US pairing saved five of nine break points and converted six of 11, winning 72 of the 131 points contested to set up a quarter-final against eighth-seeded fellow Americans Raquel Atawo and Abigail Spears.
In the men’s singles, another second seed was upset in the third round, Andy Murray losing 6-4, 4-6, 7-6 (7/3) to world No. 53 Federico Delbonis of Argentina. [FULL STORY]
