WINNING UGLY:Serena Williams won in Cincinnati despite making 37 unforced errors, and there was success for Taiwanese players in the women’s doubles


Hingis and Hantuchova will play in New Haven, then head to the US Open thinking they can last a few rounds at least.

“Obviously, we went into it with not having big expectations,” Hingis said. “Just like touching the ground, but I feel like right now we have the level of beating and playing with the best out there.”

Taiwan’s Hsieh Su-wei and Peng Shuai of China, the third seeds and reigining Wimbledon champions defeated Vera Dushevina of Russia and Silvia Soler-Espinosa of Spain, 6-1, 6-1.

Seventh-seeds Chan Hao-ching of Taiwan and Katarina Srebotnik of Slovenia beat Russia’s Alla Kudryavtseva and Anastasia Rodionova of Australia, 4-6, 6-3, 10-6.
