The Chan sisters’ bid for back-to-back doubles titles in Tokyo remained on track yesterday
as they battled into the final of the Toray Pan Pacific Open, in which they could face fellow Taiwanese Chuang Chia-jung.
Second seeds Chan Hao-ching and Chan Yung-jan edged Japanese duo Eri Hozumi and Miyu Kato 6-4, 7-5 in 1 hour, 31 minutes in their semi-final at the Ariake Coliseum in the Japanese capital.
The Taiwanese sisters saved nine of 12 break points and converted five of 12, winning 72 of the 133 points contested to make a second final in eight days following their victory in the Japan Open on Saturday last week.
In the second semi-final, Chuang and Kateryna Bondarenko were leading third-seeded Spanish duo Garbine Muguruza and Carla Suarez Navarro 6-3, 3-3 as of press time last night. [FULL STORY]
