2019法國網球公開賽,我國僅存唯一希望詹詠然今(4)日將和克羅埃西亞搭檔Ivan Dodig出戰8強賽事,將對上法國組合 A.Hesse/B.Bonzi,「台克組合」將力拚3連勝挺進4強,尋求2連霸。

TAIPEI (The ChinaPost) — Latisha Chan, Taiwan’s remaining hope in the 2019 French Open, will be playing with her Croatian partner Ivan Dodig in the quarterfinals against the French duo, composed of A. Hesse and B. Bonzi, on June 4. Chan and Dodig are seeking three consecutive wins to advance to the semifinals and potentially win two consecutive grand slam championships.

詹家姊妹在混雙分頭出擊,昨日名列第6種子的妹妹詹皓晴/Oliver Marach(奧地利)在8強賽陷入苦戰,最終以3:6、4:6不敵 Nadiya Kichenok(烏克蘭)/ Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi(巴基斯坦)。

The Chan sisters participated in the mixed doubles category in separate duos. Chan Hao-Ching, the younger sister, played with Oliver Marach (Austria) and fell to the duo consisting of Nadiya Kichenok (Ukraine) and Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi (Pakistan) in the quarterfinals with a score of 3-6, 4-6.

姊姊詹詠然則是今天要在8強登場,先前首輪直落二力退2017年澳網混雙冠軍組合 A.Spears (美國)/ JS.Cabal(哥倫比亞)晉級,次輪再以6:2、7:6(8:6)退第8種子 AL.Groenefeld(德國)/R.Farah(哥倫比亞) 晉級。

Latisha Chan and her partner previously dropped two straight sets against A. Spears (USA) and J.S. Cabal (Colombia), the duo that won the mixed doubles category of the 2017 Australian Open. In the following round, they defeated the eighth seed, A.L Groenefeld (Germany) and R. Farah (Colombia), with a score of 6-2, 7-6 (8-6) to advance to the quarterfinals.

「台克組合」今晚8強對手法國組合 A.Hesse/B.Bonzi,過去雙方並無交手過,「台克組合」前兩輪都以直落二勝出,狀況相當不錯,期盼能延續連勝氣勢,一路打進決賽力拚衛冕。

The Chan-Dodig duo has not played their upcoming opponents before, but they are in a rather good shape as they dropped two straight sets in both of their previous matches. The Taiwanese people continue to hope that the duo can carry this competitive spirit all the way to the finals and win a second grand slam championship.
