Both teams then held serve to send the first set into a tiebreaker. Aggressive volleys and strong serves proved to be the deciding factor as the team from Thailand edged out Glushko and Simmonds 7-5 in the tiebreak to take the first set.
The second set stayed even and on serve, with Glushko and Plipuech battling it out at the net and Simmons and Lertpitaksinchai stepping up with some big serves.

Lertpitaksinchai said they were very excited to win and really enjoyed the match. Both players hope to come back again next year to defend their title.
