Best result of the year! She finally did it!
Should have won at least 1 title with Kveta earlier this year in those 4 finals (in fact Chuang beat her in one of those finals so she's forgiven now
). I love this Chuang/Raymond partnership (I love all Lisa's teams
). I hope they continue if Kveta still isn't back next year. Chuang is a formidable doubles player, and they're both doubles specialists which is ideal. She has a great record in these Sep/Oct Asian events which was no doubt a key factor in their victory this week.
So relieved she got the win and carried on the streak. It was such a good season early on, kinda ruined by Kveta's injury, but she's had a good tournament here and overall still there abouts at the top of the game. Next thing is to get back in the top 10.
Lisa now has a title of some kind from every year between 1993-2009 which surpasses her good friend Lindsay's 1993-2008 (and it was Lisa that got Lindsay her only title in 2002). She equals Rennae's 1992-2008, surprisingly Rennae has not won a title this year.
Abi has been in good form this Asian circuit.
