The Estoril Open final featured two first-time WTA finalists who played each other for the first time on the WTA level and Latvian Anastasija Sevastova defeated eight years older Spaniard Arantxa Parra Santonja 6-2 7-5 in an hour and ten minutes.

The 74th-ranked Sevastova, unseeded at the Estoril Open just like her opponent in the final, started the claycourt tournament with an upset of top seed Agnes Szavay, while in the semis she defeated seventh-seeded Chinese Peng Shuai. The 81st-ranked Parra Santonja ousted second-seeded Romanian Sorana Cirstea to reach the final.
