Can Feijen Repeat It?

Defending Champion Niels Feijen (NED) is on his way to defend his title from last year in the 9-ball discipline. Today, he ended the hopes of Imran Majid (GBR) 9:2, Fabio Petroni (ITA) 9:4 and Ivica Putnik (CRO) 9:2. There was not a single match where his domination was in danger at all. He played rock solid and it will be tough for anyone to beat „The Terminator“ in this shape.


Feijen will play Konstantin Stepanov (RUS) in the quarter-final match tomorrow morning at 10:30 am local time. Stepanov had defeated Georg Hoeberl (AUT) 9:2, Roger Rasmussen (NOR) 9:2 and Chris Melling (GBR) 9:7 to book his seat for the match with Feijen. The other quarter-final matches in the men’s division will be played between Huidji See (NED) and Albin Ouschan (AUT), Mateusz Sniegocki (POL) and Ralf Souquet (GER), and Jürgen Jenisy (AUT) against Michel Bartol (CRO). Jenisy and Bartol can definitely be regarded as the dark horses in this tournament.


In the women’s division, defending Champion Jasmin Ouschan (AUT) is not less successful. She won her matches today over Marharyta Fefilava (BLR) 7:6, Katarzyna Wesolowska (POL) 7:3 and faces Wesolowska’s teammate Oliwia Czuprynska (POL) in the quarter-final tomorrow morning. Czuprynska had taken the better of Veronika Hubrtova (CZE) 7:2 and Marika Poikkijoki (FIN) 7:6. Anna Mazhirina (RUS) will have to deal with young upcoming star Kristina Zlateva (BUL) who eliminated Caroline Roos (SWE) 7:4 and Darya Sirotina (RUS) 7:6 today. The other quarter-final matches will be played between Kamila Khodjaeva (BEL) against Silvia Gaudino (ITA) and Tamara Peeters-Rademakers (NED) against Line Kjoersvik (NOR), last year’s runner-up.


In the wheelchair division, Fred Dinsmore (IRL) will meet Matt Duffy (GBR), Roy Kimberley (GBR) will face Emil Schranz (AUT), Kurt Deklerck (BEL) encounters Henrik Larsson (SWE) while Tony Southern (GBR) goes against Jouni Tähti (FIN). All quarter-final matches will be played at the same time, 10:30 am on Wednesday morning.
