Great Britain's Naomi Broady only had herself to blame as she made a first-round Wimbledon exit at the hands of Lourdes Dominguez Lino.
The 22-year-old from Stockport was always likely to be up against it against the Spaniard, ranked some 157 places above her in the world, but had more than her fair share of chances in a 6-4 7-6 (7/4) defeat.
Unfortunately for her, though, an unwanted trait of failing to capitalise on her first-set chances cost her and she was condemned to a second successive first-round knockout.
The warning signs had been there from the off, with three break points having to be saved in the first game, before Dominquez Lino cashed one in to go 2-1 ahead.
But Broady served out her next two games to love and 15, setting herself up to break back to 4-4.
But she offered up another break point in the ninth game, which was duly taken, although when Dominquez Lino went 0-40 down when serving for the set, Broady looked to have a route back in.
She was unable to take it, however, meekly squandering all three break points and when she netted on set point, her opponent moved ahead.
The second set was a more routine affair, with serve holding sway all the way through to a tie-break which Broady kicked off with a mini-break.
Again, though, she was unable to make the best of her leg-up and from 2-0 up slipped to 5-2 down, with Dominquez Lino seeing things out and moving through to a meeting with Sorana Cirstea.
Afterwards, Broady conceded she had let the game slip away from her at crucial moments.
"I felt like it was really close and it just wasn't quite there," she said.
"I had a few chances and made some mistakes which is really annoying to look back on.
"There's nothing I can do about it now. I'll just take the positives from it."
