Jovana went toe to toe with the big-serving Broady – who will rise to projected world ranking of No.108 next week – and created plenty of chances in her 7-6 (5) 6-3 defeat, including a set point in the first set.

“I was pleased with my return today,” said Jovana. “I think I was handling her serve quite well since it’s indoors here as well and she has a big serve.

“For sure I learned that when I have my chances I need to use them becauss if I don’t against good players you won’t get chances again so it’s going to get other way around.”

Jovana will return to her training base in Las Vegas before playing $25k ITF events in Arizona and California.
