Cornelia Oosthuizen entered the ITF event and was the top seed in both singles and doubles. As top seed the Brit received a bye in the first round. In the singles semi-final the young Brit took on Caroline Cleaz Savoyen. The top seed had little to worry about in the first set. Oosthuizen dominated the set and didn’t lose a game. In the second set the Frenchwoman was able to hold serve but the Brit still dominated to take the win 6-0, 6-2.

In the final Oosthuizen took on the second seed and her doubles partner Lola Ochoa. The Spaniard stayed with the Brit early in the first set. However, Oosthuizen soon got into the swing of things and dominated the rest of the first set. The second set was slightly closer as the Spaniard tried to fight back. Oosthuizen wasn’t giving up on the title though, and steamed through the second set to take the title 6-2, 6-3.

In the doubles Oosthuizen teamed up with Ochoa and received a bye into the final. The Brit/Spaniard were against Savoyen & Sandra Ventura Hostau. As a team Oosthuizen & Ochoa were the more dominant force in the first set, breaking the French/Spaniard more or less at will. The Brit/Spaniard took the first set easily and were now just one set away from the title. The second set saw Savoyen & Ventura Hostau get closer in the match, however the Brit/Spaniard closed out without much trouble to take the win and give Oosthuizen the double without dropping a set. The final score in the doubles final was 6-2, 6-3.
