A great finals match ensued at the 2012 ITTF World Tour Spanish Open, with both the top seeds having been eliminated it was the finest in form left at the final hurdle. Chinese Taipei's Chuang Chih-Yuan staked his desire to pin another World Tour to his repertoire while Lee Jung Woo was hunting for his first. The clash was tight from the word go, the first two sets 11-9 and 12-10 in Chuang's favour, hard fought and earned, point for point. Lee launched a fight back winning 2 sets by a clear 11-7 margin but the more experienced player Chuang was not about to let the game fall from his grasp, he took the match 4-2 and with it, the Spanish Open 2012 title.

In the womens it was the more experienced Kim Kyung Ah, riding off the back of a successful WTTC campaign, who soared through to the finals and continued on to claim victory. It took just 5 sets for the Korean to defeat her compatriot Yang Ha Eun, taking an early 3-0 lead and dropping just one set before she closed out the match for the title.
