" I live to defend my title of course. But coming to an event as the defending champion is never easy. There is extra pressure on my shoulders but pressure is a privilege and that is how I see it. I will do my best and have a good time on the table and what happens happens," says the ultra popular Ouschan. Her fan base in Philippines has sky rocketed since her win here. "But first it is about playing game and feeling good on the table. "

What's special about 10-Ball?
"Well first of all it is my first world champion title and I know how hard we(her coach Michael Neumann) worked for this title. Also I love 10-Ball cause with this new discipline we finally have a discipline where the luck factor is not as high as in others. And I also won this title in the Philippines where I have so many fans that have supported me throughout the years. All that makes it very special and important. "

And your feeling if you successfully defend your title with a win again?
"I have no idea. It would be amazing, and I would probably need some time to realize it. But I also know that this year was not easy and right now I am just thinking of the first match I have to play."
