The first prize of Women’s Doubles was fought over by no.3 and no.4 positions in the draw Lung/Degraef and Brateyko/Bajor.
In this finals match the Belgian double was way more likely to win. Their position in rankings was higher, and another thing was that it was the first time that Brateyko/Bajor team played together, whereas their rivals have worked in pair for quite a time. Nonetheless, Brateyko/Bajor double beat the odds and refused to miss a single set, winning with 3:0 (8, 9, 6).
Solomiya Brateyko expressed her feelings in the post-match interview: «It was very scary for us to play in this final match, but I’m so happy now. Never before have I taken the first prize in such competitions, in fact it’s my first serious victory. The efforts that I’ve put into all these games were worth it».
