Stevens bids farewell to Bad Homeburg early

Swann, who will take part in Wimbledon, won the WildCard with a 2-6, 6/4, 6/2 victory.

Swann, 23, needed a WildCard invitation card to take part in the current tournament qualifiers in Germany, and is scheduled to play doubles with Stevens on Monday.

‘It feels good,’ Swann said in a post-match interview. Sloane is an amazing player. She’s a Grand Slam winner, and you can’t get any better.’

She added: ‘Actually we’re going to play doubles together tomorrow, so I hope it’s fun. I’m so happy to win this game. It’s my first grass court tournament outside England, so it’s been fun so far, and that’s probably the best result I’ve ever achieved.’

Caroline Garcia of France and Camilla Rakhimova of Russia, who beat eighth-ranked Lyudmila Samsonova of Russia, qualified for the second round.
