Doha: It was a sweet revenge for China’s Chen Ke and Wang Manyu, who defeated compatriots Chen Xingtong and Sun Yingsha 8-11, 11-2, 11-4, 11-4 to win the women’s doubles at the ITTF World Tour Platinum Qatar Open here on Sunday.
The No.8 seeds had lost to the same opponents at the Hungarian Open final early this year.
“After we lost in Hungary, we changed our tactics. In the third game, when we were down 1-4, we tried to keep our self-belief and follow the tactics of the previous game,” said Chen.
It was the second career World Tour doubles title for Chen and Wang after they won in Korea in 2014.
