In an intense final match, Jasmin Ouschan (AUT) won the title of the European Straight Pool Champion 2015 with 75:57 over Kamila Khodjaeva (BEL). Both players have just arrived here from Asia, playing the Amway Cup in Taiwan. Therefore, one could see that they were both really exhausted.
However, the match was still high class pool with a bit too many mistakes from both sides. Since none of the two contestants could really gain a big lead over the other, the match remained really exciting until Khodjaeva played a bad safety shot at the score of 64:57 in favor of Ouschan. That was her last visit to the table. Ouschan ran the table and won her 8th straight pool European Championship in the past 11 years. „I am really happy this is over“, said Ouschan after the match, „I am so exhausted. I took a defeat in the early rounds and had to fight my way all through the loser’s side“, Ouschan added.
歐錦賽14-1決賽由奧地利名將Jasmin Ouschan對上2012年青少年世錦賽冠軍，比利時的Kamila Khodjaeva。兩位選手都參與了甫在台灣落幕的安麗盃，開賽前剛從亞洲抵達葡萄牙，在經過了長途的飛行後，看得出兩位選手們的疲憊感。 決賽當中，雖然雙方都出現了一些失誤，但兩位選手仍展現出一場高水平的演出。比賽進行的相當激烈，雙方都無法拉開與對方之間的差距之下，直到Khodjaeva出現了一個安全球的做球失誤後，讓Ouschan取得64:57的領先。而那也成為了Khodjaeva最後一次的上場擊球，最終Ouschan清台並拿下了今年的14-1冠軍。而這也是Jasmin Ouschan在過去11年歐錦賽當中，所贏得的第8個14-1項目的冠軍。
