The former world junior champion from Norfolk had been competing, against the recommendation of her coach, the England manager Alex Cowie, following a bout of tonsillitis, but this time she took the advice of Cowie and quit with a bad back after losing the first game to the Australian Robyn Cooper.
'It doesn't feel too bad but I shall take immediate treatment and only then will I know,' Jackman said.
England nearly had an unexpected bonus when Martine Le Moignan, the 31-year-old former world champion who will play her final tournament in Guernsey, nearly brought down the second-seeded Australian Liz Irving. Le Moignan came from two games down to lead 4-0 in the final game only to lose 10-8, 9-6, 6-9, 4-9, 9-4. The top-seeded British champion, Suzanne Horner, did reach the quarter-finals, beating Philippa Beams, of New Zealand, 7-9, 9-0, 9-3, 9-4.Reuse content
