The second seed Indian lost 3-6 6-1 2-6 to local girl Ying-Ying Duan in the semifinals of the hard court tournament.
Nevertheless, it was one of better results for the Indian this season.
"I am very upset. I thought I had the match after the second set. I had good rhythm in the second and in the third as well but I don't know what went wrong. Since I knew I had the match I was more upset. I will go home and then leave for the French Open, so looking forward to that," said Ankita.
Her effort, earned Ankita, ranked 175, a total of 29 ranking points.
