In the following hot seat match between Paulowske and Demet, Paulowske finished well, winning the final two games he needed to defeat Demet in a hill-hill nail-biter.

Hernandez went on to win twice as many games as Parrone in the quarterfinals, winning 6-3. In the semifinal match, Hernandez steamrolled Demet 6-1 to advance to the finals.
