Jarmila Gajdosova’s heart-warming run at the Nanjing Ladies Open has come to an end at the hands of Ayumi Morita.
Gajdosova pushed the Japanese fourth seed hard in the opening set before ultimately going down 7-6(6) 6-2 in one hour and 28 minutes.
The Australian took to Twitter following the loss to the 63rd-ranked Morita, which ended a five-match winning streak.
“Unfortunately couldn’t do it today! Still happy with my first week back!” she wrote.
“I have sad news too. I won’t be able to compete in Taipei due to my shoulder. I hurt it couple matches back. So this was my last event this year and I will prepare for next season.
“I am really sorry and would like to thank (the) Taipei tournament and director for giving me (a wildcard) and I am sorry I can’t come to your event!!”
The Taipei tournament was the next in the WTA’s 125K series of events in Asia.
Having qualified for the Nanjing event before progressing to the final four, Gajdosova is expected to markedly improve on her current ranking of No.300 when the new WTA rankings are released on Monday.
