Neither Duque Marino nor Kerber had ever been beyond the quarter-final stage of a WTA-level event before the week began, and both pulled off major upsets in the semi-finals as they beat Arantxa Parra Santonja and top seed Gisela Dulko respectively.

In the final, however, it was home favourite Duque Marino who beat Germany's Kerber to lift the title.
