SPORT NEWS: Hobart Int’nl- Chan sisters reach doubles final

Taiwan’s pair Latisha Chan and Hao-Ching Chan emerged on top of Romania’s Monica Niculescu and China’s Zhaoxuan Yang in straight sets to proceed to the doubles final at the WTA Hobart International tournament at Domain Tennis Centre. The pair prevailed in successive sets and wrapped the game without breaking much sweat.

The Taiwanese pair had advanced to the doubles semi-finals courtesy withdrawal of their quarter-final opponents, Slovenia’s Dalila Jakupovic and USA’s Sabrina Santamaria.

 

The sisters have set up a date with Johanna Larsson and Kirsten Flipkens who defeated Anastasia Potapova and Dayana Yastremska 7-5, 6-4 in their semi-final tie.

 

The tournament is being held between January 5-12 ahead of the calendar year’s first grand slam — Australian Open — which starts in Melbourne next week from Monday (January 14).
