In singles matches, the women won three of six matches. 

Court three finished first with Campino leading in both sets 7-5 and 6-2. Next, Moll Alles led 7-6 in the first set and won 6-1 in the second set.

The next two matches were losses for Nevada. Luneva went into three sets with Tsveti Yotova. Luneva led in the first set 6-3, lost 6-1 in the second and 6-2 in the third. Charalampidi lost in two sets to Alexis Johnson, 5-7 and 6-2.

Number two Genkova went into three sets and won the match. She won the first set 6-1, lost the second 3-6 but won the last 6-1. The last game that finished was number four Turulja against Paige Alter. Turulja was able to win the first set 6-2 but lost the last two sets 4-6.
