Manila, Philippines- Yahoo Sports Philippines has given extensive coverage of the Yalin Women’s World 10-Ball Championship. Sports writer and TV commentator Bob Guerrero’s articles gives insight and terrific photos of the day by day stories. Included is a candid interview with former World Champion Jasmin Ouschan, a fan favorite in the Philippines.
From Yahoo!Sports-
Jasmin Ouschan is thousands of miles away from Klagenfurt, Austria, and yet she feels right at home here in the Philippines.
“I came to the hotel room (at the Crowne Plaza) the other day, and it felt like my second home. I feel so comfortable here. I can’t say that about any other place. The hotel is great, the venue is great. People are so nice, the food is great, and I can work out too. A massage here is just 9 euros. At home its 60 euros. When I enter the massage place they know my name!”, said Ouschan at the start of the interview.
Ouschan has prepared for the 2012 Yalin Women’s World 10 Ball Championship in a unique way: by taking a break from the game that has defined her life since she was six years old.
Earlier in the year she finished second in the prestigious Amway Cup in Taiwan to Chieh You-Chou. Then in April she played in the European Championship, picking up the Women’s 10 Ball gold. But something was amiss.
“After the Amway cup and European Championships I knew I was not happy with my game. I couldn’t go on like that. I needed to take a step back.”
“My results weren’t bad, but the feeling I had at the table, I dunno, it was just too hard. I wanted it too much. I was not relaxed enough. When you fight all the time you come to a point where your batteries are empty.”
