The girls’ final between Helena Jansen Figueras from Spain and Kateryna Zadorozhna from the Ukraine was a fiercely fought contest, which was a match of endurance. It can be said that the Spanish had the edge over the Ukrainian. It was clear that Zadorozhna was not used to the heat while it was not a problem for Figueras.. The match was a question of who could survive the heat. After losing the first set 6-1, Zadorozhna had to retire due to fatigue and an injury.
