GREAT Wakering's Ryan Peniston saw his thrilling run at Queen's come to an end after a battling quarter-final performance against Filip Krajinovic.

Peniston won the first set 6-4 in thrilling fashion against the world number 48 Krajinovic.

But the Serbian battled back to win the next two sets 6-3, with Peniston admitting he did not serve well enough to be able to build on his fine start.

Peniston said: "I came out firing and it was a good level match. 

"I thought I definitely served well, especially in the first set.

"I knew Filip was going to come out second set fighting and he started to play some high level stuff. 

"I think in the third set he had the upper hand really. 

"Then he broke me and I managed to fight and get a break back, but I feel like I didn't serve well enough in the end of the match and he was too strong."
