Maria Parra (Spain), the No 2 seed and the Women's World Amateur No 3, was expected to make her way through to the final but she lost by one hole in the quarter-finals to compatriot Ana Pelaez.
In the semi-finals, Pelaez won by 3 and 2  against Angelica Moresco (Italy) who beat England's last hope, Inci Mehmet in the second round.  Pelaez was the seventh best qualifier for the match-play stages.
