It was a successful week for British women in Spain with three British players reaching the quarter-finals with Lucy Brown going on to reach the final and finish runner-up.
Brown was eventually beaten 6-2, 6-1 by top seed Johanna Konta but the Briton had reached the final with an impressive 6-1, 6-1 success against third seed Rocio De La Torre-Sanchez of Spain.
There was also British interest in the other semi-final with Lisa Whybourn taking on Konta, the latter prevailing 6-0, 6-4.
The sixth seed Jade Windley reached the last eight before losing to De La Torre-Sanchez 6-7(1), 6-4, 6-4.
There was better news for Windley in the doubles though as she partnered Anna Fitzpatrick to a 1-6, 6-0, [10-8] success against Garcia-Perez and De La Torre-Sanchez to lift the title.
This after the pair had beaten compatriots Brown and Alexandra Walker in an all-British semi-final.
Whybourn also reached the doubles semi-final with Konta before the pair lost in straight sets to the Spanish runners-up.
Three British players will contest the quarter-finals draw in Madrid after each winning two matches apiece so far this week.
Fourth seed Lisa Whybourn takes on Carolina Prats-Millan for a place in the last four after her straight sets win against home favourite Olga Parres-Azcoitia in round one was followed swiftly by a battling 2-6, 6-4, 6-1 victory against China's Nan-Nan Zhang.
Meanwhile sixth seed Jade Windley defeated Spain's Silvia Garcia Jimenez in straight sets in the opening round before recording a 7-6(6), 6-4 win over Nikola Frankova of Czech Republic.
The 21 year-old must now overcome world No.405 and third seed Rocio De La Torre-Sanchez to reach the semi-finals.
The final Briton in quarter-finals action is Lucy Brown who faces Italian qualifier Stefania Fadabini in her next match.
Brown has shown fighting spirit to overcome both her opponents so far this week in three sets.
Fellow Britons Alexandra Walker and Anna Fitzpatrick were both beaten in their opening round singles matches although both are still in doubles action as the draw reaches the semi-final stage.
There will be a guaranteed British finalist as Fitzpatrick and Windley play Brown and Walker in the first semi-finals and Whybourn partners Johanna Konta in the second semi-final.
Four of the five British women are seeded this week. Round one is yet to begin in the singles. The five women are all seeded in the doubles.
