The Magee family, from Raphoe, were knocked out of the US Open at the quarter-final stage on Friday.

Chloe was up against seventh seed Linda Zetchiri, from Bulgaria, in California yesterday.

She lost 22-20 and 21-12.

In the mixed doubles, Chloe and her brother Sam (pictured above) met the number four seeds from Australia, Robin Middleton and Leanne Choo.
