GUIMARAES, PORTUGAL: Teenage champions are assured in the doubles event. With the third seeded first time partners Margarida Moura, 19, and Joana Vale Costa, 17, already through to the final and looking to join the Portuguese pair are the German-Liechtenstein pairing of Stefanie Stemmer, 19, and Kathinka Von Deichmann, 18, who face Sofia Araujo, 17, and Maria Palhoto, 18, later today (Friday).

Should Araujo and Palhoto triumph in their semifinal it will set up a first ever all Portuguese women’s doubles final.

For Moura and Vale Costa, this will be their second final together and will be hoping to add another title to that which they won back in May in Cantanhede.
