During the afternoon, several semi-finals have been decided in Malmö. World number one Ariana Sánchez and Paula Josemaría played against Alejandra Salazar and Sofia Araujo.
The match was an interesting battle where Josemaría/Sánchez had a hard time on the court while Salazar/Araujo showed a great game. This resulted in the Spanish-Portuguese duo winning the match in two sets.
The result was written: 6-2, 6-2.
— We played really, really well. Alejandra told me that today was our day and it was, so we are very happy," Araujo told Viaplay after the match.
— It's great for me to be back as competitive as I want to be. With my forehand on fire, I gave a lot of points to the team. Sofia defends perfectly. It was almost a perfect match. We have the best feelings here in Malmö so hopefully, we can repeat this performance tomorrow.
