Zi Yan and Jie Zheng of China stunned Olympic gold medallists and compatriots Ting Li and Tian Tian Sun to lift the doubles title in the $1,40,000 WTA Hyderabad Open today. Yan and Zheng were in total control and never really threatened by their fancied opponents, cruising to a 6-4, 6-1 victory. The third seeded pair seemed a confident lot from the word go and took a 2-0 lead in the opener and 3-0 in the second set to assert their supremacy. And after a fairly well-contested first set, they tightened their grip and overwhelmed the doubles title winners at the Athens Olympics, who appeared to be struggling to get their act together. Yan and Zheng became the first Chinese women to reach a grand slam singles fourth round at Roland Garros last year. (PTI)
