Bojana Jovanovski of Serbia has made quite a name for herself. But the 16-year-old feels that her aggression needs to be curbed.

It was this aggression and a lot of unforced errors that cost her the $50,000 ITF women’s Championship. Jovanovski lost to third seed Sandra Zahlavova of Czech Republic 6-4, 6-3.

The scoreline, however, doesn’t reflect the true picture of the match. The first set saw both players exchanging break of serves in the first four games, with Jovanovski finally keeping her serve in the fifth game.

Jovanovski then lost her serve in a crucial ninth game to give Zahlavova the advantage.

The second set saw a shift in momentum, with Zahlavova looking more assured on the court.

Increasing her first serve percentage, she shifted the Serbian on the backfoot, to seal the win and take home the title.
