Jovana will not play in the $50k ITF Pro Circuit event in Joue-Les-Tours, France next week as she continues to recover from a knee injury she picked up on her recent trip to China.

Jovana suffered muscle damage during the ITF tournament in Sanya and, despite managing to qualify for the WTA event in Guangzhou the following week, needs more time to get back to 100 per cent.

The world No.161 hopes to be fit in time for the $50k in Limoges, the week commencing October 14.

“Unfortunately I have to pull out of the $50k in Joue-Les-Tours next week because I’m still recovering from the knee injury I had in China,” she said. “I am working hard to get healthy again and hope to be able to play in Limoges the following week. Wish me luck!”
