Luanna Alzuguir of Alliance tapped out UAE Team’s Carol DeLazzer from back control in the first of her matches. Next, she masterfully caught Marina Ribeiro by the arm in the semifinal.
Now, Michelle Nicolini of CheckMat won her semifinal by tapping out Polyana Lago, who had tapped out Mackenzie Dern a little earlier, sending her through to this Sunday’s final.
