Guernsey's Heather Watson has been knocked out of the ITF's tournament in Nantes in straight sets.

The 19-year-old British number two went down 6-2, 6-4 to home favourite and fifth seed Iryna Bremond of France.

It was the first time that world number 89 Watson had ever played the Belarus-born world number 101.

Watson had in her second round win over Spain's Leticia Costas-Moreira after a closer first round win over Kristina Mladenovic.
