Building on her performance at the 2019 World Masters, during which she won gold, Dutch Tessie Savelkouls entered the final against the 2018 European Champion, long injured, but back at the highest level, Romane Dicko (FRA). The French controlled the final and scored ippon with an o-uchi-gari to take a significative win in Tel Aviv.

The first bronze medal was disputed between a Grand Slam medalist, from the 2019 inaugural Brasilia tournament, Rochele Nunes (POR) and Kim Hayun (KOR), silver medalist at the 2019 World Junior Championships. As Kim was disqualified after having received three shidos, Rochele Nunes won the bronze medal.

World medalist from 2019 Kayra Sayit (TUR) and Larisa Ceric (BIH), world medalist in 2018, had undoubtedly come to Tel Aviv for a more beautiful metal, but they had to settle for a bronze medal match. Rapidly Sayit took the lead with a left handed sasae, immediately followed with an immobilisation for ippon.
