Croatian tennis player Donna Vekic couldn’t control her emotions after being edged out by Frenchwoman Caroline Garcia in the final of the WTA Nature Valley Open in Nottingham on Sunday.

Vekic was the better player off the blocks, racing away to take the first set 6-2. The duo then exchanged a break before Garcia pulled one back. In the decider, both players held on to their service games before the latter went on to pull off another tie-breaker.

No wonder, emotions got the better of the 22-year-old when she was asked to reflect on her performance during the courtside interview.

After getting a standing ovation from the crowd, Vekic, who had to be consoled by interviewer Annabel Croft, said: “Congrats to Caroline, she played unbelievably well. I don’t know what else to say. To the crowd, you guys have been amazing.”

She will look to get over it when she takes on recently-crowned French Open champion Ashleigh Barty in the first round of this week’s WTA event in Birmingham.
