The top-seeded team of Ansley Cargill and Julie Ditty took the MECCO Cup doubles title in Allentown, PA with a 6-2, 6-3 victory over second-seeded Cory Ann Avants and Kristen Schulukebir. Southern greats, Cargill and Ditty, once again dominated the draw only dropping one set for the duration of the tournament. After their win the two lefties agreed that they stepped on the court with a similar purpose, to play aggressively and dictate points. "Julie and I came out to win, said Cargill. "We decided to come out an try to break serve first and it happened and I held and I think that’s really what set the pace for the match.”

Lee-Waters met Ververa Lepchenko in the highly anticipated final, where for the first in time 2005 both the number one and two seeds advanced all the way through the draw.
