Taipei, May 1 (CNA) A Taiwanese pair that has won two junior tennis Grand Slam titles became
the first players to keep the title of the Santaizi ATP Challenger at home Sunday.
The third-seeded Taiwanese pair, Yang Tsung-hua (楊宗樺), 25, and his 24-year-old partner Hsieh Cheng-peng (謝政鵬), beat fourth-seeded Federik Nielson of Denmark and Ireland’s David O’Hare 7-6(6), 6-4 in Sunday’s final of the week-long tournament.
“(I’m) grateful to my partner Hsieh Cheng-peng, who helped me grab a title upon my comeback,” said Yang, who had been treating an injury to one of the fingers of his right hand after the Australian Open in January.
Yang and Hsieh first teamed up when they were competing in junior tournaments and won the doubles title at both the Australian Open and Wimbledon in 2008. [FULL STORY]
