The Jamie's (Hsu and Subandhi) looked strong this past weekend at the 2018 IV Jamaica International winning Women's Singles and Women's Doubles.

17-year-old Jamie Hsu won four of her five matches in straight-sets, including the finale against world No. 82 Daniela Macias from Peru, 22-20, 21-8 on her way to her third International Series victory in two years. She beat Macias last, in Orange, CA, at the YONEX/K&D Graphics International Series in August of 2017.

Hsu cruised through Micaela Flores Vasquez de Velasco in the R32, Nekeisha Blake 21-9, 21-9 in R16, and Martina Repiska 21-10, 21-15 in the QF before facing fellow American, Crystal Pan in the semifinals. Pan, a member of the 2017 Sudirman Cup American team, won the first game 21-16 before Hsu came back to win 21-15 and 21-11 in the next two games.

Hsu partnered with Jamie Subandhi (who placed third in WS) to win the Women's Doubles portion of the tournament.

The pair never lost a game - and didn't come close - defeating a Jamaican pair before facing three consecutive pairs from Peru.
