Doi falls to Venus in Taiwan final


Misaki Doi failed to earn her second title on the WTA tour on Sunday, when she lost the final of the Taiwan Open to former world No. 1 Venus Williams.

Williams, currently ranked 12th in the world and the top seed at Kaohsiung’s Yang-Ming Center, defeated the 61st-ranked Doi 6-4, 6-2 despite double-faulting nine times.

The 24-year-old Doi won her only championship last year in October’s Luxemburg Open.
