Daniel Schneider Ends Muratovic’s Journey in the Semi-Final

Daniel Schneider (SUI)

First Medal for young Bosnian Federation

Sarajevo, Bosnia & Hercegovina: Daniel Schneider (SUI) defeated Alen Muratovic (BIH) in a one-man show with 8:1 in the semi-finals of the junior's division 9-ball.


Muratovic was the darling of the crowd. He obtained a medal for his home nation for the first time in history, That burden obviously rested hard on his shoulders. He could not get into his game as he used to in earlier rounds. On the other hand, Schneider played solid pool with few mistakes. When he missed shots, the position for Muratovic very often was not good. All these factors lead to the match becoming pretty much a one-man-show for Schneider. In the second semi-final of the junior's division, Andrey Seroshtan (RUS) ousted Tobias Bongers (GER) with 8:6.


The pupil's final will be played between Raphael Wahl (GER) and Jan Van Lierop (NED). Wahl eliminated Cyriel Ledoux (NED) with 7:1 while van Lierop just made it over Can Salim-Giasar (GER) with 7:6.


In the girls division, the final match will be played between Kateryna Polovinchuk (UKR) and Sabrina Hammer (GER). Hammer terminated her teammate Veronika Ivanovskaia 6:3 while Polovinchuk ended Kristina Tkach's (RUS) hopes for a set in the final with 6:4.


The final matches will begin at 12:15 CET
