R1: Nour Sherbini 3/0 Rachael Chadwick

[2] Nour El Sherbini (EGY) 3-0 Rachael Chadwick (ENG) 11-6, 11-5, 11-4 (25m)

“I really missed the tour and the matches.

“I was really excited about today’s match and I just wanted to get on court and see how it goes, but it went really well. I was playing good and I’m really happy to be back.

“In the first game [my knee] was in my head a little bit, but I was running ok and it felt good. I didn’t have any problems and hopefully it is going to be like this the whole week.

“I’m really looking forward to playing in front of the Pyramids and this court is very special. You can play and see the Pyramids, so it is very special and I’m really looking forward to playing my next round there.”
