Taiwanese hopes were ended at the US Open on Wednesday when Chan Yung-jan crashed
out in the semi-finals of the mixed doubles, losing to a familiar foe.
Second seeds Chan and Rohan Bopanna of India fell to a 6-2, 7-5 defeat to fourth seeds Martina Hingis and Leander Paes of India in just over an hour a day after Chan’s bid for women’s doubles glory had also been ended by the Swiss former world No. 1.
Hingis and Paes saved one of two break points and converted four of eight, winning 61 of the 106 points contested on Court 17 to advance to a final against unseeded the US duo of Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Sam Querrey, who ousted Andrea Hlavackova of the Czech Republic and Lukasz Kubot of Poland 6-4, 6-3.
