Taipei, Feb. 17 (CNA) Taiwanese sisters Latisha Chan (詹詠然) and Chan Hao-ching (詹皓晴) clinched the women's doubles titles at the Qatar Total Open in Doha on Saturday, defeating their Germany-Netherlands rival 2-1.

In the doubles final against fourth-seeded Anna-Lena Groenefeld and Demi Schuurs, the Chan sisters eased through the first set 6-1.

In the second set, Groenefeld and Schuurs put up more of a fight and topped the Taiwanese duo 3-6, forcing a super tie-break.
