Petkovic had eight break points in the match but could not make any of them count as she was broken three times by the 21-year-old who sent down six aces on her way to victory.

"She has played an almost perfect match," Petkovic told www.nuernberger-versicherungscup.de.

"I would not have won if I could have put in 150% power."
