2019 year marks Paola's tenth time winning the Open - more than any other player in the competition's decades-long history.

But this year's win was extra sweet.  After suffering a defeat at the hands of María José Vargas, Paola came back to triumph over the Argentine player in the Open, beating her 15 to 5 and 15 to 7.
