Peng of China and Hsieh of Chinese Taipei were in trouble early, dropping the first set, 6-2, but they came storming back to take the second set, 6-3, and built quadruple match point in the match tie-break, 9-5. They missed those four and another at 10-9, but they got sixth time lucky to win 2-1 at Lindner Family Tennis Center.
