Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

I went through your problem description. Sincerely, the problem your daughter is facing is not much of problem at all. The repeated failure syndrome (simply apprehension) can easily be cured if she wins another match played with an equal ranked player.

But your daughter should play again for that. Counseling should do a lot of good to her. She is just 14, and there is, of course, adolescence mind frame.

Please consult a psychological counselor.

Hope this answers your query. Available for further clarifications.
Good luck.
