Guernsey's Heather Watson lost her first final for 10 months to Germany's Mona Barthel at the Aegon GB Pro-Series event in Shrewsbury.

British number two Watson lost 6-0 6-3 to the German top seed and described the match as "not a good day at the office" on her Facebook page.

It was Watson's first final since she won the Tevlin Challenger event in Toronto last November.

She added she was "pretty disappointed but had a good week overall".
