Jovana was understandably dejected after the defeat and admitted that she never found her rhythm against the 17-year-old from Hungary.

“It was a frustrating day for me, that’s for sure,” said Jovana after also losing her doubles match. “It was a bad day at the office and unfortunately I wasn’t able to settle down and play my tennis. I felt like I was always one step behind so credit to her for playing a good match.

“I still had a couple of great wins this week so I’m happy with the way I played at home and I’m looking forward to building on this for the end of the season.”
