Jovana cruised through her first two rounds without dropping a set before overcoming a stern test in the quarterfinals against Russian opponent Karine Sarkisova.  Sarkisova held a pair of match points which Jovana bravely fought off with winning drop shots to stay in the match and eventually prevail in a third set tiebreaker.  Jovana’s luck ran out in the next round, unfortunately, where another Russian Darya Kasatkina bested her in the final four by a score of 6-1, 6-4.
