Doo will take heart from this performance where she took two games off world number one Chen Meng, including one of two FAST5 games played. It was Doo who fought back after dropping the first, and the Hong Kong player ran her opponent close in the second game before finally breaking through to win the third game. But Chen stepped up a gear to dominate the fourth, and came back strong to seal victory with the second FAST5 game.

Doo Hoi Kem:
Quite normal to drop the first game seeing as my opponent is stronger than me. I will focus on doing well for my upcoming matches.
In competition, can’t expect things to go all my way, so the dropped sets were quite normal. So I just kept my focus and hope in my future matches I can get into my rhythm a lot faster.
