Jovana started the match brightly and took the first set 6-3 with some attacking play, but her level dropped thereafter and some unforced errors allowed her opponent back into the match.

The world No.162 was unable to regain the momentum and suffered a 3-6, 6-3 6-3 defeat.

“I’m disappointed with the result because I had practiced very well and felt confident going in,” Jovana said afterwards. “I felt like I made a lot of unforced errors after winning the first set and never recovered the momentum. I still had my chances and it was a close match so I’ll try to take some positives and do better next time.”

Jovana will next play the $25k event in Casablanca, Morocco, where she will be the number one seed.
