After winning the first set, Canada's Katherine Sebov had to admit defeat in three sets of 3-6, 6-4 and 6-3 against India's Karman Kaur Thandi on Sunday in final of the Saguenay Challenger.
After dropping four break points in the opening game of the second set, Sebov faltered in the end, being herself broken in her two last games in the service. She also lost her serve twice in the final round to let the victory slip away.
Sebov (266th) had however previously defeated several players better ranked than her to reach the final. After an entry victory against the Mexican Maria Fernanda Navarro, 953rd in the world, she beat the Japanese Moyuka Uchijima (111th), the Hong Konger Eudice Chong (242nd) and the Dutch Arianne Hartono (207th).
