The duo coached by Neki Berwig kept a hold of that advantage thanks to Llaguno's control and Amatriain's tireless work. Cata and Bea broke back in the fourth game but they were lacking consistency and dropped the first set 6-2. Cata and Bea tried to turn the tide in the second set and the strategy seemed to be to play the ball more towards Amatriain. But the end product was just the same: Patty and Eli broke in the third game and started to steer towards the title. Tenorio and Gonzalez broke back, as they did in the first set, in the fourth game to make it 2-2. This marked a turning point and they took three games on the bounce to lead 5-2. The match was heading towards a third set as they won 6-3. In the third set, both pairings gave absolutely everything to try and claim the title. After several breaks, the definitive one came at 3-2. Patty and Eli said enough was enough and took every remaining game to win 6-2.
