 Agatha Bednarczuk / Eduarda "Duda" Lisboa Brazil (3) def. Victoria Bieneck / Isabel Schneider Germany (9) 19-21, 21-17, 17-15 (51)

Agatha Bednarczuk, Brazil - “It was a crazy game. It’s always hard against them. They are a very strong team and every time we need to come up with a different strategy. They are very solid and the most important thing against them is to be attentive and understand what’s necessary in every game.

Duda Lisboa, Brazil - “When the new world rankings came out we were really happy to see that we were on top. Of course we know it changes all the time because there are several great teams capable of getting to the top, but I’m proud that we got there. Now we want to keep there and, most importantly, keep playing well.”

Victoria Bieneck, Germany - “All in all, I think we had a good performance. In the end some details costed us the match, but they are a really good team and had three match points before that. I’m proud of how we fought and tomorrow we get another chance to win.”

Isabel Schneider, Germany - “It was amazing. When I entered the stadium and heard all those people cheering for us I was very emotional. I’m really thankful that we have this opportunity to play in the Finals at home. We worked really hard for it. I’m glad we have another chance tomorrow.”
