Wimbledon 2014: Naomi Broady upbeat despite Caroline Wozniacki loss
Wimbledon 2014: Naomi Broady loses to Caroline Wozniacki, while Tara Moore is beaten by Vera Zvonareva
Naomi Broady refused to be downbeat despite her 6-3 6-2 defeat by former world No2 Caroline Wozniacki in the second round of Wimbledon.
The British No1 won her first Grand Slam match at SW19 against Hungary’s Timea Babos on Monday but lasted just 59 minutes against the sixth seed on Court One.
“I very much enjoyed it,” said Broady, 24. “I very much didn’t enjoy my tennis, but I very much enjoyed the experience.
“I didn’t quite make it to an hour, did I? I think I looked up at the end and it was 59 minutes.
“It’s frustrating I didn’t play better, and I wish that it would have gone on longer. But I loved every minute that I was out there for.”
Elsewhere, British No6 Tara Moore lost 6-4 6-7 (3-7) 9-7 to Russian Vera Zvonareva in a delayed finish to their first-round match.
“She played good on the big points,” said Moore, 21. “She didn’t give me anything. She made me work for everything. I think I did the same for her. She had to try very hard to beat me today.”
