Polish and Latvian Jelena Ostapenko surrendered 2:6, 3:6 to Marie Bozkova (who was Rusulska’s partner in Nottingham) and Lucy Hradec.

In the 67-minute match, Rosolska and Ostapenko made nine double faults. They only scored six out of 20 on the second pass. Buzkov and Hradika saved five out of seven breaks and traded five out of nine for a break.
This was Rozelska’s seventh doubles match in Birmingham with a 0-7 budget. Together, Bulka and Ostapenko won the championship in St. Petersburg in 2017.
