Tai­wan-China ten­nis duo de­feated in fi­nal of open

The China Post - - LOCAL -

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.
