Taiwanese sisters Latisha Chan and Chan Hao-ching, and siblings Hsieh Su-wei and Hsieh Cheng-peng on Friday both notched victories in their respective doubles events at Wimbledon.
The ninth seeded Chan sisters cruised past Belgian duo Alison van Uytvanck and Greet Minnen 6-2, 6-1 in less than an hour to advance to the third round of the women’s doubles.
They entered Wimbledon on a high by winning the women’s doubles at a Wimbledon warm-up event at the Nature Valley International, but they are next to face the formidable sixth seed duo of Belgian Elise Mertens and Belarussian Aryna Sabalenka.
Mertens and Sabalenka last month reached the finals of the French Open women’s doubles and won top-tier events in Indian Wells and Miami in March. [FULL STORY]
