Chloe Magee heads to Basle this week for the Swiss Open in confident form after battling her way through qualification and into the last 16 of the women’s singles at the All Englands in Birmingham earlier last week.
In Basle, she is straight into the main draw where she plays a qualifier in the opening round. If she wins, No 1 seed Yihan Wang of China awaits in round two. The pair last met at the Denmark Open of 2012 when Wang, who made the All England final that year, won easily.
In the men’s singles, Jonathan Dolan faces local player Marco Fux in the opening round and also pairs up with Sam Magee in the qualification tournament for the men’s doubles.
Sam Magee, forced to pull out of the All Englands with ‘flu, is reunited with sister Chloe for the mixed doubles. They have a tough draw in the opening round of the main draw, playing Germany’s Michael Fuchs and Birgit Michels who are No 4 seeds.
