Brazilian Jessica Becker has won the 2009 Sopelana BBK Pro.

She defeated USA rider Roberta Bitzer in a hard fought final that saw Jessica get off to an early lead. Roberta came back with two srtong rolls to reduce the score to a 6.10 for a win but time was ran out and Jess walked away as Champion.
