Das, Ederer, Jungo and Boyes go for the title

Saturday, 27 August 2011: Day three of the Dynamic German Open Euro-Tour in Brandenburg, Germany, came up with interesting matchups.

Dimitri Jungo (SUI) had a close encounter with Konstantin Stepanov (RUS) in the round of the last 16 players, defeating him 8:4. At a score of 3:3, Jungo decided to shift into overdrive. He won 4 racks in a row, being on the hill at 7:3. Stepanov, who was obviously impressed by his opponent's performance, was only able to win one more rack before Jungo finished the match, winning 8:4. Jungo repeated that in his quarter-final match against Kevin Becker (GER). Both players went head to head until a score of 4:4. Then Jungo simply overran his German opponent, winning the match with 8:5.

Serge Das (BEL) proved to be the horror for Polish players today. He ousted Patryck Bryll in the round of the last 16 players by a margin of 8:7 and then ended Mariusz Skoneczny's hopes in the quarter-final with 8:3.

Young German talent Manuel Ederer took out Jayson Shaw (SCO) with 8:2 and then Tony Drago (MLT) with 8:7 to secure his spot in the semi-finals.

Karl Boyes (GBR) overran Noel Bruynooghe (BEL) 8:3 and his fellow countryman Chris Melling 8:7 today. He will have to deal with Jungo in the semi-finals.

The semi-finals will be played one after the other at 14:00 and 16:00 local time with the final to be played today at 18:00.
