An emo­tion­al Chung, a five-time Caribbean women's cham­pi­on, who is still reel­ing from the pass­ing of her step-fa­ther and men­tor, for­mer na­tion­al and five-time Caribbean men's sin­gles cham­pi­on Dex­ter St Louis re­cent­ly, out­classed Cos­ta Ri­can Fiorel­la Val­le­cil­lo 11-4, 11-7, 11-4, 11-4 in the round-of-16 fol­lowed by an 11-5, 11-8, 11-7, 11-7 whip­ping of Paraguay's Lucero Over­lar in the quar­ter­fi­nals.

With one of two spots at stake for the Pan Amer­i­can Games card­ed for Li­ma Pe­ru in Ju­ly/Au­gust at stake, Chung then brushed aside Guyana's Tre­nace Lowe 11-4, 8-11, 11-5, 11-2, 11-9.

In the oth­er half of the draw, two-time T&T na­tion­al women's cham­pi­on, Brit­tany Joseph beat Hon­duran, Re­bec­ca Ayestas 8-11, 11-7, 9-11, 11-3, 11-8, 9-11, 15-13 but was then oust­ed by Paraguay's Ley­la Gomez 3-11, 7-11, 7-11, 4-11.

Joseph then con­test­ed the play­offs for fifth to the sixth spot, beat­ing Bar­ba­di­an, An­thonette Ri­ley 11-6, 11-1, 11-5, 11-4 on­ly to fall to Paraguay's Over­lar, 6-11, 8-11, 4-11, 6-11.
