Chloe was the only Canadian match on for today and it was an exciting match to watch against the 5/8 seed, Tinne Gilis of Belgium. The first game was really close but Tinne pulled it out 13-11. Chloe came out strong in the second game and won 11-7. Chloe hit a few more tins than she wanted so Tinne got the third game 11-8. Chloe played some amazing squash in the 4th game and took it 11-7. Tied at 2-2 the match was getting more intense. Chloe came out strong but Tinne held her ground and didn't seem to be making any errors. Tinne won the 5th game 11-6.
