Chan Hao-ching (born September 19, 1993), also named Angel Chan, is a professional tennis player representing Taiwan. She is primarily a doubles specialist, winning 8 WTA and 8 ITF titles in that discipline. At the 2014 Wimbledon Championships, Chan reached the final of mixed doubles with Max Mirnyi to reach her first ever grand slam final.

She is the younger sister of fellow professional tennis player Chan Yung-jan.[1]

Professional career[edit]

2013[edit]

At the beginning of the season she won title at the Shenzhen Open with her sister Chan Yung-jan beating Irina Buryachok and Valeria Solovieva in straight sets.[2] She reached the quarterfinals of Indian Wells Masters with Janette Husárová falling to Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina. At the Portugal Open she won her second title of the year with Kristina Mladenovic defeating Darija Jurak and Katalin Marosi in straight sets.[3] Chan reached second round of the French Open with Darija Jurak. Chan would then suffer first round losses at both Wimbledon and US Open. Chan also reached finals of Southern California Open with Janette Husárová and Toray Pan Pacific Open with Liezel Huber.[4] She finished 2013 ranked 26th.

2014[edit]

At the Wimbledon, Chan reached the final of mixed doubles with Max Mirnyi to reach her first ever grand slam final. Along the way, they defeated defending champions Daniel Nestor and Kristina Mladenovic in straight sets. However, the pair lost to Nenad Zimonjić and Samantha Stosur also in straight sets.[5]

2015[edit]

Early in the year Chan won the title at the PTT Thailand Open with her sister defeating Shuko Aoyama and Tamarine Tanasugarn in three sets. Chan and her sister won their fourth WTA doubles title together at the Western & Southern Open, and by doing so now have the second-most WTA doubles titles for a pair of sisters in WTA history after only Serena Williams and Venus Williams. Cincinnati represents their biggest title yet, their first at the Premier 5 level. They won another title at the Japan Women's Open in Tokyo.[6] They reached two other finals, at the Toray Pan Pacific Open losing to Garbiñe Muguruza and Carla Suárez Navarro and the final of the China Open losing to the number 1 pairing of Martina Hingis and Sania Mirza.[7][8] Hao-Ching and Yung-Jan, have just become the third all-sister pairing ever to qualify for the WTA Finals after the Manuela Maleeva and Katerina Maleeva in 1986 and the Williams sisters in 2009.[9] They reached semifinals losing again to Martina Hingis and Sania Mirza.[10][11][12][13] It was Hao-Ching's first appearance at the tournament. She finished 2015 ranked 12th, her best year-end ranking so far.
