Taiwan’s Chan Yung-jan and Zheng Jie advanced to the doubles final at the Aegon International in Eastbourne, England, on Friday when their semi-final opponents, second-seeded Russian duo Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina, withdrew.

The cross-strait duo, who have a 10-5 record this season, were due to face Caroline Garcia of France and Katarina Srebotnik of Slovenia, who have an 18-11 record, in the final late yesterday at Devonshire Park.

Chan is the reigning doubles champion after she teamed up with her younger sister, Chan Hao-ching, to defeat Martina Hingis and Flavia Pennetta in Eastbourne last year.     [FULL  STORY]
