Emily Webley-Smith & Sofia Shapatava again joined forces and entered the ITF doubles in Spain. The Brit/Georgian were the second seeds. As a result they received a bye into the quarter-final.

In the quarter-final the second seeds were facing Irene Burillo Escorihuela & Guiomar Maristany Zuleta De Reales. However, the Spanish pair didn’t take to the court so Webley-Smith & Shapatava moved into the semi-final without having to hit a ball 0-0 RET.

The semi-final had the Brit/Georgian against the third seeds Marina Bassols Ribera & Ekaterina Yashina. The Spaniard/Russian pair were no match for the second seeds. Webley-Smith & Shapatava made very light work of the third seeds. Losing only two games in the whole match the Brit/Georgian dispatched the third seeds in straight sets 6-1, 6-1.

In the final Webley-Smith & Shapatava were against the only other team to have a Brit taking part. Samantha Murray & Elitsa Kostova had already dispatched the fourth seeds and the top seeds to reach the final. Murray & Kostova stayed toe to toe with the second seeds until towards the end of both sets. Webley-Smith & Shapatava only needed one break in each to secure the win and lift the trophy 6-4, 7-5.
