With Kristin eliminated from the tournament, Line Kjorsvik won the qualifier spot before she even had to play the final match.

 

Justine went on to play Line for the final match. Since it was a true double elimination event, Justine would need to beat Line in two sets of a race to 4. As with all of her other matches, Line dominated the match and won with the score of 7 to 1. Congratulations Line! We’ll all be routing for you during April! We hope to see you again.
