Jovana produced some solid shot making from both wings to stun her French opponent on the green clay.

Lim, ranked 150 in the world, threatened to mount a challenge in the second set, but Jovana saved six break points and raced to the finish line in an hour and 31 minutes.

“I’m so excited to get the win today and most of all I’m happy with my level,” said Jovana. “I only found out that I got in here yesterday and had a long car journey from Florida last night. So I’m just pleased that I was able to focus and play my game to take this opportunity.”

Jovana next faces her compatriot Alexandra Krunic.
