Laura Robson has lost to Caroline Wozniacki 6-4 6-4 in the second round of the Aegon International.
The number five seed took all three of her break point opportunities on the way to her second defeat over Robson in 24 days.
Robson served three double faults in the first set which gave Wozniacki a chance to break the casual exchange of serves after half an hour.
The former world number one served out the set a game after to take the lead.
Robson’s low confidence followed her into the second set and Wozniacki took advantage with an early break.
The British number one battled her way back four games later when she broke back at the third attempt with a thunderous volley.
The Dane remained stubborn and managed to regain her advantage three games later and close out the match.
Wozniacki will play Ekaterina Makarova in the quarterfinals tomorrow.
Robson feels she has improved since their last encounter in Paris and rues her missed chances.
She said: “I guess it was better than when I played her in Paris.
“I couldn’t finish it off.
“I definitely had chances and I got myself into a very good position in the points.”
Her opponent Wozniacki believes the match was no walkover despite the straight sets victory.
She said: “I really had to fight out there and keep focused on my own service games.
“We had some quite tight games.”
