New Zealand tennis number one Marina Erakovic has been beaten in the final round of qualifying at Monterrey WTA tournament in Mexico losing to Israel's Julia Glushko 6-0 6-4 in just over an hour.

Erakovic will now have to rely on a potential lucky loser place if she is to make the main draw of the tournament.

In doubles Erakovic will team with Spaniard Silvia Soler-Espinosa against the top seeded Spanish combination of Annabel Medina Garrigues and Arantxa Parra Santonja.
