World number four Helene Receveaux (FRA) was stunned in the U57kg final by The Hague Grand Prix silver medallist Theresa Stoll (GER). World bronze medallist Receveaux strolled through the preliminaries of the Grand Prix in Tbilisi but encountered a different level of opposition in the final as a game Stoll more than matched her French opponent.

Young German judoka Theresa Stoll caught Receveaux with a ko-soto-gake for a waza-ari score and held firm to win her second Grand Prix gold medal.

In the first semi-final Receveaux rushed past Tashkent Grand Prix winner Anna Borowska (POL) by ippon in the second minute with an ouchi-gari. In the second semi-final Agadir Grand Prix winner Timna Nelson Levy (ISR) was held down by Stoll, who had defeated her twin sister and and u23 European Championships winner Amelie Stoll (GER) in the quarter-final.

The first bronze medal was won by Nelson Levy who trapped The Hague Grand Prix bronze medallist Martina Lo Giudice (ITA) with a sankaku-gatame hold and there was no escape for the Italian as Israel won their first medal at the Tbilisi Grand Prix 2018.

The second bronze medal was won by Amelie Stoll (GER) after her adversary Borowska was penalised for a third time to receive hansoku-make. Just as the scoreless contest was about to go into golden score with the regulation period complete a shido was given to the Polish judoka for a gripping infringement and Borowska left in tears while Stoll left with a beaming smile.
