Rising Serbian Bojana Jovanovski earned her first WTA title at the Baku Cup in Azerbaijan on Saturday. With this title victory, she also became the first Serbian women's tennis player to win a WTA trophy this season.
Bojana Jovanovski does not belong to the elite category of her compatriots Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, but she is right on the track to emerge as the new force of Serbian tennis. Jovanovski, who was seeded fifth at the International-level tournament, capped a perfect week of tennis on Saturday. The Serbian made a tremendous start against the American Julia Cohen, as she won 10 of 11 games in the match and went on to complete the victory in straight sets with a 6-3 6-1 scoreline.
I've worked really hard for this," Jovanovski said. "I had two weeks of really hard preparation before this tournament, so I was expecting to play well here. It's been a tough week, especially because it's so hot here. The quarterfinal was a really, really tough match, so after that everything seemed easier for me. I felt much better after that match. I'm really glad I made it through that one."
She further added that "I went into today's final with nothing to lose. I was so positive. I was just trying to fight for every point and not thinking about winning or losing, just trying to play the best I can. It feels great to win my first title. I'm so glad I did it."
