The 22-year-old from Yorkshire claimed one of the best results of her career in the first round by beating fifth seed Tsvetana Pironkova.

But O'Brien, who is ranked 150 in the world, had problems with her serve against the 21-year-old Russian.

She was broken six times in the second round match in Portoroz.
