doubles at the Taiwan Open yesterday, while Elina Svitolina, one of the few surviving seeds, progressed to the quarter-finals of the singles in straight sets at the Taipei Arena.
Lee and Peangtarn Plipuech fell to a 2-6, 6-2, 10-7 comeback victory by Nao Hibino and Zhang Kailin in 69 minutes.

“It was disappointing for me. I had miscues and unforced errors several times, and lost the points and should have made some shots, but did not do it. For these mistakes, I want to apologize to my doubles partner,” Lee said.

“It was not a good performance from me today, it was worse than my opening match … I missed some block shots up front. When going to the net, I can get nervous and it showed,” Lee said. “In the second set, our opponents slowed the tempo and changed the pace of the game, and we were slow to make the adjustment.”    [FULL  STORY]
