Van Uytvanck is among the 16 women who have won a singles title in 2019. She was the last of the group still playing at this week's clay-court tournaments in Lugano, Switzerland and Bogota, Colombia. The fourth-seeded Belgian lost 6-4, 7-5 to 108th-ranked Fiona Ferro of France to ensure there will not be a repeat of her hard-court victory in Budapest in February.
Polona Hercog joined Ferro in the quarterfinals by beating another unseeded player, Sorana Cirstea, 3-6, 7-6, 6-4. The 89th-ranked Hercog had also dropped the first set in her first-round win over second-seeded Carla Suarez Navarro.
