Taiwan-China tennis duo defeated in final of open
Taiwanese tennis player Chuang Chia-jung and her Chinese partner Liang Chen fell at the last hurdle at the Connecticut Open on Saturday, losing the women's doubles final in straight sets 3-6, 1-6 to Julia Goerges and Lucie Hradecka.
Chuang and Liang fell behind almost immediately to the fourth-seeded German and Czech and failed to rally in the second set.
"Our rivals played so well that we were overwhelmed. We lost many deuce points and did not set the pace in our own service games," Chuang said in a Facebook post after the final, adding that she was still pleased with her performance over the past week.
