Last women’s match in the 2nd China Billiard World Champion was held between Chinese home star Chen Siming and British legend Kelly Fisher. Chen Siming took the victory 17-11 with a purse of 400,000 RMB.
Chen Siming started rolling with a 3-0 lead before Kelly Fisher came back and tied the score 3-3. It was a close game til 8-7, when Chen won the last 3 racks to finish the first half leading 11-7. After the mid-session Chen pulled the game away with a convincing final score 17-11.
Chen Siming had winning records in events like Asia Olympics and international Opens, but lacked World Championship titles in her profile. ‘This Chinese 8 ball Championship is the first World Championship I have won, although I’m not a Chinese 8 ball player. It means a lot to me and gives me a tremendous boost in my confidence.’ Said Chen Siming.
‘I was thinking I might end up with another runner-up before the final, but it was still not bad to finish second so I simply went out and play. I will be mentally stronger and stay calm for future 9 ball World Championship games. You have to forgive yourself and forget about the mistakes you made during games. The best form you can have is the current form.’
