Alicia Barnett and Chanel Simmonds teamed up at the ITF event in Israel and were the top seeds. The Brit/South African had a bye in the first round. In the quarter-final the top seeds were up against Shavit Kimchi & Maya Tahan. The Israeli pair were no match for Barnett & Simmonds who stormed through the match, barely breaking their stride. The Brit/South African dropped only three games to move into the semi-final in straight sets 6-2, 6-1.
The semi-final saw Barnett & Simmonds another all Israeli pairing Adva Dabah & Koral Koldobski. This match was very similar to the previous round as the top seeds had little trouble with the opponents. Just like the previous round the Brit/South African only lost three games to move into the final in straight sets 6-1, 6-2.
In the final the top seeds were against Amandine Cazeaux & Noelly Nsimba. The French/Canadian pair were the toughest opponents so far for Barnett & Simmonds. Cazeaus & Nsimba fought hard, but the top seeds managed to secure the break of serve in each set. No matter what the French/Canadian tried they could not break back. The top seeds lifted the trophy in straight sets 6-4, 6-4.
