The Dynamic Billlard Austrian Open as well as the Ballazzo Austrian Women’s Open are down to the semi-final matches.
Probably a huge surprise name in the semi-finals of the Open tournament is Ronald Regli (SUI). He managed to overcome Petri Makkonen (FIN) 9:7 and the Ivo Aarts (NED) 9:6 in the quarter-finals. Aarts had just ousted Albin Ouschan (AUT) 9:6 the round before. Regli’s opponent in the semi-final is Marco Teutscher (NED) who is part of the „young orange“ team form The Netherlands. Teutscher defeated „The Terminator“ Niels Feijen (NED) 9:8 and Wojciech Szewczyk (POL) 9:2 today. Teutscher is also not a regular in Euro-Tour semi-finals. The second semi-final will be played between Germany’s young gun Joshua Filler and Mark Gray (GBR), the only player who is kind of expected in this late stage of an event. Gray is currently ranked nr.2 on the Eurotour rankings and he will have a shot at conquering nr.1 spot since his direct rival Feijen dropped out in the quarters today.
In the women’s event, the first semi-final is played between Kamila Khodjaeva (BEL) and Vania Franco (POR). Khodjaeva ousted Anna Mazhirina (RUS) 7:1 and Sara Rocha (POR) 7:5 today. Her opponent Franco defeated Kristina Grim (GER) 7:5 and then Christine Wiechert (GER) 7:5 for her spot in the semifinal match. The other semi-final will be played between Austrian superstar Jasmin Ouschan (AUT) and Amalia Matas (ESP). Ouschan overpowered Melanie Suessenguth (GER) 7:1 and then Veronika Ivanovskaia (GER) even 7:0 while Matas finished Marika Poikkijoki (FIN) 7:6 and Kristina Tkach (RUS) also 7:6.
The semi-finals start at 14:00 and 16:00 CET. The women’s final is scheduled for 18:00 and the men’s final for 20:00 CET.
