BREAKING NEWS: DONEGAL Olympian Chloe Magee has won the first game in her first match tonight in London.
The Raphoe woman was up against the Egyptian Hadia Hosny.
Chloe appeared to suffer from nerves in the first game, making several unforced errors, but she won the first game 21-17, shouting ‘Come On’ as she won the final point.
She was clearly more settled in the second game and completely ran away with it, winning 21 to 6.
Chloe showed some deft touches to have 14 match points at the end of the second game.
The two games to nil victory will be a huge confidence booster for Chloe.
There was a large Irish contingent in the audience who cheered as the 23-year-old Donegal woman won.
Chloe was expected to win the match because she is ranked 70 places above the Egyptian.
She has another must-win game on Tuesday to qualify for the next round.
Her second game in Group I will be against former world number four Pi Hongyan of France.
