Two huge unreturnable serves finish it off, and the first doubles title of 2021 goes to Japan. Congratulations to Aoyama and Shibahara - they were better enough to take the opportunities they needed, but Carter and Stefani played superbly as well. That was exemplified by each team winning 68 points.

One quirk of how this event finished - three of the four players move to new career highs (Aoyama 18, Shibahara 20 and Stefani 30). Carter is now at 34 (CHR 31).

This time all four players realise that the flowers are in the shape of the UAE flag, and hold the trophies accordingly for the photos.

Stats are:
183909

Dr Buzz breaks Osuigwe and will serve for the match 6-2 5-2. She is looking good and happier than yesterday for sure.

Well done Mayo, really an impressive match !

Gerlach and Rakhimova are two different style of player... but she turned off them like a boss

Hibi won her serve to love to seal the deal. Rakhimova has the chance of a LL spot, according to my calculations.

Osuigwe now leads 6-5. There always has to be a drama match in the last round of GS qualies when someone loses from a winning position and this could be it.
