Niels Feijen is on fire! After winning the 9-Ball European Champion title two days ago, he is now in the final 16 players of the Dynamic Billard North Cyprus Open Euro-Tour event. He had an epic clash with Albin Ouschan (AUT) in the round of the last 32 players. Feijen seemed to be unstoppable by Ouschan. After 8 racks, the scoreboard displayed 7:1 for Feijen. Then the tide seemed to turn in the match. Ouschan won a rack after Feijen gave him a good safety position but Ouschan luckily pocketed the 2-ball. That obviously gave him wind underneath his wings. Ouschan managed to pull a few racks back from Feijen. And “The Terminator” seemed to be impressed by Ouschan’s comeback. 6:7 was the score after 13 racks. Then, Ouschan came up with a sloppy played safety shot. That was his end in the tournament. Feijen ran that rack and the next one to win this match with 9:6. He will now face Chris Melling (GBR) in the next round.
Other notable results from today include Manuel Gama (POR) ousting Darren Appleton (GBR) from the event with 9:6. Serge Das (BEL) had a close heads-up match with Daryl Peach (GBR). Das had the better end in his favor, winning the match with 9:8 over Peach. Young „Orange“ player Ivo Aarts (NED) also still has the chance to leave his footprints in the tournament. He defeated Babken Melkonyan (ROM) with 9:6 and will now have to deal with „grandmaster“ Ralf Souquet (GER) in the next round.
In the women’s Euro-Tour event, all-time favored player Jasmin Ouschan (AUT) won her match in the round of the final 16 players clearly with 7:1 over Katarzyna Wesolowska (POL). She will now face Wesolowska’s teammate Oliwia Czuprynska (POL) who eliminated Kateryna Polovinchuk (UKR) 7:1 in the next round. Kristina Zlateva (BUL) has a match with Monica Webb (USA) in the same round. Zlateva overcame Martine Christiansen (NOR) 7:3 while Webb destroyed Darya Sirotina (RUS) with 7:1. Caroline Roos (SWE) will play Ana Gradisnik (SLO) in the same round, just like Claudia Kunz (SUI) versus Kristina Tkach (RUS).
The Euro-Tour event will continue tomorrow morning at 10:00 am local time.
