Talking Taipei 100K+H Final: [4]Yung-Jan Chan d. [1]Ayumi Morita 64 26 62, back to top 100!

Amazing quality final, especially the third. Winner after winner from both. I never knew they were such good friends (yeah to think this is like their 10th meeting it's not that surprising), they were giving each other a smiley big hug at net in the end.

I wouldn't have thought YJ would win this at all after seeing her first rounds (I was sure it would be Chang, the player impressed me the best in early round, but sort of fell apart against tenacious Morita). YJ seemed quite nervous in front of the home crowds, but it just got better with each match. AND sure she'll be back inside top 100 finally! She's earned 450 pts out of her 682 pts since USO.

Ayumi Intriguing quick play and great defense! Above all amazing fighting spirit facing some vocal crowds. You just made me a real fan this week.

Again congrats YJ.

Great week for Yung-Jan!
Happy she won this. Real miracle that Morita didn't retire!

Good on her. Now hopefully she can start to make an impact on the WTA too. Same could be said for Morita actually.

It's a very good match.
They both played good.

I'm so happy that YJ won this title.

Latisha picking up where she left off before her injury! So great to see her playing well again. Now she will be MD for OZ, too! When I first saw the draw, I knew she would come through it. Great job Chan!
