Taiwanese tennis ace Hsieh Su-wei wins both doubles events at Australian Open

Taiwanese tennis ace Hsieh Su-wei wins both doubles events at Australian Open

2024-01-29

At this year’s Australian Open Hsieh Su-wei won not just one but two doubles titles. That makes her the first woman to have won both the women’s doubles and mixed doubles event at the championship in 24 years. The post-match scene was emblematic of Hsieh’s unconventional style, as Taiwan’s doubles tennis ace did everything from mixing Chinese into her speech to nearly forgetting to grab her trophy.

During the trophy ceremony for the Australian Open women’s doubles event, Hsieh Su-wei, Taiwan’s beloved tennis ace, used a bit of Chinese to thank the crowd. Hsieh’s unconventional style was on full display in her play, short speech, and even in her almost walking off the court without her trophy.

In addition to sharing photos of her and doubles partner Elise Mertens celebrating their victory, Hsieh also shared her excitement during the post-match press conference.

Hsieh Su-wei
Tennis player
(At this year’s Australian Open) it was probably because I was not expecting anything, and I just tried to come back to enjoy it. The first two Grand Slams, like Roland-Garros or Wimbledon, I was not even nervous on the court in the finals. So I know this is going to get into the heads of the girls, because I was smiling a little on the court. For me, it’s no problem, because even in the mixed doubles, I’m not really the kind of person that’s afraid of the guy or even the woman, so it’s not a big deal for me. So, the most important thing is I need to control my partner on the court.

At this year’s Australian Open, Hsieh took home two trophies: mixed doubles and women’s doubles. Hsieh’s women’s doubles partner explained that despite Hsieh’s decision-making being a bit perplexing, the Taiwanese tennis ace is always able to lead her partners to both enjoy matches and pick up victories.

It’s very fun to play with Su-wei. Yeah, I don’t know what she’s doing sometimes but… Yeah, very happy to be back on Su-wei’s side. I mean, it’s amazing to play with her.

Hsieh is the first woman to win both the mixed doubles and women’s doubles at the Australian Open in 24 years. The total prize money for Hsieh’s two victories is $478,750 Australian dollars, which is slightly more than NT$10 million. After increasing her career Grand Slam titles to eight, Hsieh has returned to being No. 2 in the world rankings in women’s doubles.
