法網混雙8強戰,我國女子雙打好手詹詠然和克羅埃西亞搭檔Ivan Dodig在經歷了2盤的比賽後,以6:4、6:3戰勝地主組合Amandine Hess/Benjamin Bonzi,順利搶下4強戰門票。

TAIPEI (The China Post) – Taiwanese doubles specialist Latisha Chan and her Croatian partner, Ivan Dodig, won the quarterfinals of the French Open’s mixed doubles category. They dropped two straight sets against Amandine Hess and Benjamin Bonzi with a score of 6-4, 6-3 to advance to the semifinals.

詹詠然和Dodig本屆賽會以非種子身分參賽,但卻一路過關斬將,取得了3連勝。此役面對Hess/Bonzi兩人在首盤於第9局完成破發,率先搶下一盤優勢;次盤在前6局打成平手後,他們突然發力、兩度破掉對手發球局,也拿下最後的勝利。

Chan and Dodig competed without being seeded in the tournament but still managed to win three matches in a row. During their match against the Hess-Bonzi duo, they broke their opponents’ serve in the ninth game of the first set and took that set. In the second set, both duos were tied at three games to three, but Chan and Dodig broke their opponents’ serve twice to win the entire match.

這一場贏球後,詹詠然和Dodig也收下了近期的8連勝,但是下一戰要和頭號種子Nicole Melichar/Bruno Soares進行交手,恐怕將會是場硬仗。

Chan and Dodig achieved an impressive feat of winning eight consecutive matches in recent tournaments. However, they will be playing the first seed, the duo consisting Nicole Melichar and Bruno Soares, in the semifinals, so the level of competition will definitely rise.
