Last year Bojana Jovanovski won her maiden WTA title at the Baku Cup in Azerbaijan, but this time her appearance at the event was cut short already in the second round by a Tunisian wildcard Ons Jabeur. The 37th-ranked Jovanovski was the top seed at the $235,000 tournament, but her world No.204 opponent lost just two points in the first four games of the match and came back from behind in the second set to clinch a 6-2 7-5 victory.
Second seed Donna Vekic is at 17 the youngest player in the draw, but now she’s the biggest favorite for the title. She advanced to the quarterfinals by spending just one hour and 44 minutes in her first two matches. (photo: Ralf Reinecke)
