In a more than thrilling final match, David Alcaide (ESP) won the Dynamic Billard Treviso Open against Joshua Filler (GER) with 9:6.

The final match was as high class as expected. Alcaide and Filler came up with a great performance and delivered some high class pool action. However, due to the pressure also some mistakes have been committed by both players. The fact that the final match and the semi-finals are played with a shot clock does its share to even raise the pressure. Alcaide had the better start in the final. He ran away with 3:0 before Filler got started. But the young German hung in there. He used his chances whenever given and kept the match a close and thrilling affair.

After nine racks, the scoreboard displayed a 5:4 lead for Alcaide with Filler to break. The rack turned into a safety battle and actually it looked like Filler would be able to force Alcaide to commit a foul. Alcaide answered this by playing a deliberate foul and putting the 2-ball and the 6-ball together. The rack was dominated by tactical play. In the end, Alcaide pocketed the deciding ball and got to a 6:4 lead. That was one important point in the final match. Instead of Filler levelling the score at 5:5, Alcaide was now 6:4 up with his own break shot to come. He had an illegal break and Filler cleared to stay close with 5:6.

The next break was Filler’s and he was really unlucky. He had three balls down but the cue ball got kicked and scratched in the corner pocket. Again, Alcaide got away with a 2-point-lead with his own break shot coming up. This time, he capitalised from his break shot. He almost ran out of position on the 3-ball but Lady Luck was on his side. Alcaide got on the hill with an 8:5 lead over Filler. Filler won the next rack before Alcaide got to the table with his own break, leading 8:6. Alcaide missed the 2-ball but left the cue ball very close to another object ball for Filler. The German kid used a rest but touched the 3-ball while pocketing the 2-ball. With ball in hand, Alcaide conquered the table, took the match with 9:6 and won his second Euro-Tour after 2009.

In the first semi-final, David Alcaide encountered Mieszko Fortunski (POL). The Spaniard had the far better start and got a quick 6:3 lead over Fortunski. The Polish struggled a bit with his break shot. Either he had no ball down or he played an illegal break. This problem was the reason for Alcaide to gain his early advantage. But after a while, Fortunski got in better shape and pulled some racks from Alcaide since he committed several mistakes. The match was hill-hill with Fortunski breaking the balls in rack 17. Again, his luck left him and he had no ball pocketed, leaving a good position for Alcaide. Alcaide seemed to be ice-cold, getting to the table and clearing the rack ball after ball, winning the semi-final to take him into the final match.

In the second semi-final, Joshua Filler had to deal with „The Terminator“ Niels Feijen (NED). Filler got into the match better and won some early racks taking a 6:3 lead over Feijen. But then Feijen shifted into overdrive and even overtook Filler with 7:6. The players took racks in turn and again, the match had a hill-hill situation after 16 racks played. Rack 17 was opened by Feijen. He had no ball down on his break shot but left nothing for Filler. A few safety shots were exchanged. Filler started shooting first, pocketing an extremely hard jump shot on the 1-ball. The audience was shocked when he missed the 2-ball right after it. However, another tough position for Feijen. The Dutch tried to pocket the 2-ball along the long rail but he missed. Filler had nerves of steel, got to the table and ran the rack for his 9:8 victory over Feijen.

Earlier today, some real heartbreakers occurred among the matches. In the quarter-finals, three out of four matches ended 9:8 and one was 9:7. Drama was on among the last eight players. Albin Ouschan (AUT) went hill-hill with Joshua Filler. At 8:8, Ouschan had the break shot. He broke the balls and had a nice layout with a good first shot. However, he got a bit weird position on the 4-ball and the consequently found himself with a tough but makable 7-ball. Whether it was the pressure, his nerves or something else will probably remain Ouschan’s secret. For a fact, he dogged the 7-ball and gave Filler an early Christmas present. The young German got to the table and only needed to pocket three easy shots to win the quarter-final over the reigning World 9-ball Champion with 9:8. Feijen and Fortunski were the other two players who just got over the finish line with 9:8. Feijen ousted Sebastian Ludwig (GER) and Fortunski pipped Marco Teutscher (NED) to the post. David Alcaide achieved a 9:7 over Konrad Juszczyszyn (POL) which took him into the semi-final match against Fortunski.

歐巡賽-特雷維索公開賽落下帷幕,在率先結束的男子組爭奪中,西班牙的David Alcaide 9-6力克德國新星Joshua Filler,奪得桂冠,這也是其自2009年以來收獲的第二座歐巡賽冠軍獎盃。

男子組方面,1/4決賽既刺激又充滿著戲劇性。四場角逐中有三場打到決勝局才分出勝負,其余一場比賽則以9-7結束。現任9球世錦賽冠軍、奧地利名將Albin OuschanFiller戰至雙賽點,決勝局是Ouschan的衝球局,衝球後形勢相當有利,他卻在打進4號球叫7號球時母球走到了比較尷尬的位置,最終Ouschan未能打進7號球,Filler笑納大禮,輕鬆收掉最後三顆球,以9-8絕殺對手闖入半決賽。荷蘭名將Niels Feijen和波蘭好手Mieszko Fortunski也以相同的比分淘汰掉德國的Sebastian Ludwig和荷蘭的Marco TeutscherAlcaide則9-7擊敗了波蘭的Konrad JuszczyszynFortunski會師半決賽。

半決賽中,AlcaideFortunski再度戰至雙賽點,這一次,幸運女神再次眷顧了Alcaide,與1/4決賽類似,Fortunski衝球不下,Alcaide接管好局直接清台,頑強殺入決賽。另一場交鋒中,”終結者” Feijen在一度3-6落後的局面下將比賽拖入決勝局。決勝局由Feijen衝球,儘管沒有球下,但是也沒有留下機會,經過一番安全球大戰,Filler通過一桿高難度的跳球將1號打進,但未能打進2號球,而Feijen同樣強攻2號不中,Filler最終清台贏得勝利。

決賽伊始,Alcaide取得3-0的完美開局,但菲勒並未放棄,頑強地在9局後將比分追為4-5.第10局,雙方陷入持久的安全球爭奪,局勢上似乎顯示Filler將扳平比分,然而,Alcaide用強力的表現捍衛了領先優勢,在同時將2號和6號打進後接著再穩穩打進制勝球,將比分改寫為6-4。僅管此後Filler表現頑強,但運氣不佳再加上進攻時身體觸碰到球的低級失誤葬送了他的努力,Alcaide最終以9-6的比分拿下決賽,從而奪得了個人自2009年以來的第二座歐巡賽冠軍獎杯。
