The WTA International event in Monterrey, Mexico, is Jovana’s favourite and most successful tournament.

She made her debut on the WTA tour there in 2013, and last year she reached her first career WTA final, losing to compatriot Ana Ivanovic in straight sets in the first all-Serbian final in WTA history (2-6, 1-6).

The 21-year-old from Belgrade is looking forward to the event where she feels like at home.

“I’m very excited to return because, as you know, the Monterrey Open is my favorite tournament. I see Monterrey as my second home. I’m really grateful to the organisers for the wild card and for giving me the opportunity to participate in the main draw again this year. It would be great if we could have another Serbian final,” Jovana said.
