Vekic, who became the youngest WTA finalist in six years when she reached the Tashkent final in her first main draw appearance last September, has now won her first two career grass court matches. She defeated Italy's Camila Giorgi in the first round. "My best career win against (WTA 38.) Urszula Radwanska," the World No. 89 wrote on her Facebook page. "Hope you can understand how happy I am. Enjoyed playing on centre court in Birmingham."
Veteran tennis journalist Stuart Fraser took note of the occasion, tweeting:
