The final started with an early 3-1 lead for the Brazilians, but Serbia came from behind to level the result at 3-3. During the continuation of the first half the result was equal with slight leads on the both sides. Serbian players had the last lead in the match 10-9 before Brazil went on with a 4-0 run to take a three-goals lead 13-10. Serbian team scored before the halftime to make it 13-11. In the second half, Brazilian players maintained the lead over two thirds of the second half when the Serbians succeeded to tie with a 4-0 series. The final entered with a tied result at 19-19 in the last four minutes. Brazilians scored to take the lead, which was answered with an equaliser brought by Andrea Lekić to make it 20-20. However, the Brazilian team took the lead once again and after Dragana Cvijić missed to score for her team, Ana Rodriguez scored to finish the match and set the final result 22-20. Alexandra do Nascimento with six and Dragana Cvijić with five goals were the best scorers for the both finalists. Brazil became the first South American country to win the World Women's Handball Championship and only the second non-European (after South Korea) to do so. Eduarda "Duda" Amorim was elected the Most Valuable Player and Barbara "Babi" Arenhart the best Goalkeeper of the competition.
