Makarova won her 15th title in doubles while Gasparyan – the 4th one.

«I think we did quite well, if we are taking in account the fact that we are playing for the first time at this tournament», – Gasparyan shared her impressions after the victory.  «Probably, we don’t want to talk about Olympics that is so far yet. I am really happy we have won the Olympics with Lena [Vesnina], but it’s too long down the road. For sure we made a good pair and we did well together with Rita. She is a very talented player»,  –  Ekaterina evaluated the chance of appearing a new duo for the next Olympics.
