Ankita Raina could not go past the second round at the French Open qualifiers, suffering a straight set defeat against Japan’s Kurumi Nara in Paris on Thursday.
Raina, India’s top singles player, lost the second round contest 3-6 2-6 in one hour and 21 minutes.
“It (match) was not bad. I had chances in my service game but she returned very well today. If I had converted those games, then it would have been different. Also there were windy conditions today,” Raina said after her match.
