Austria’s Mario He just clearly defeated Francisco Sanchez-Riuz (ESP) with 9:2 in the final match of the Dynamic Billard Austrian Open in Alpina Wellness & Sports Hotel, St. Johann i.Pg., Austria.

Mario He’s way into the final could not have been longer. He lost his opening match and had to take the long road through the loser’s side. Then, in the single elimination stage, he eliminated Tomasz Kaplan (POL) 9:8, Daryl Peach (GBR) 9:3, Marco Teutscher (NED) 9:4 and in the semi-final his teammate Albin Ouschan (AUT) 9:8. Sanchez’ way into the final match led over victories over Mark Gray (GBR) 9:2, Konstantin Stepanov (RUS) 9:6, Nick van den Berg (NED) 9:5 and in the semi-final Joshua Filler (GER) 9:7. The final match turned out to become a one man show by Mario He. Sanchez just could not find his rhythm. He even committed a time foul since the match was under the clock and he simply took too much time for his shot. After 9 racks, Mario He was up 8:1 and only a little step away from glory. Sanchez tried to give a bit more of a fight to Mario He and won another rack. But that was it for Sanchez. Mario He returned to the table and ran another rack, winning the final with a more than impressive result of 9:2. „I am over the moon“, said He after the match, „I had the worst of all starts and now I win the tournament here. Unbelievable!“ „I played quite solid in the single elimination stage but I also had strong opponents“, added Mario He. „This is my second victory on the Euro-Tour and it is always so special to win this coveted event“, mentioned He with a smile.

The Dynamic Billard Austrian Women’s Open have also commenced today. #1 seeded player Kristina Tkach (RUS) justified her seed and took down Ewa Bak (POL) 7:3 and then Jessika Nilsson (SWE) 7:0 even. These two clear victories got her in the single elimination round of the last 16 players where she will face Marharyta Fefilava (BLR). Another favoured player is always Amalia Matas (ESP). She performed quite strong today and won her matches 7:2 over Pia Blaeser (GER) and 7:3 over Sara Rocha (POR). She will join Tkach in the single elimination and will have to deal with Nataliya Seroshtan (RUS) in the next round. All-time favourite in European women’s events Jasmin Ouschan (AUT) wasted no time with her opponents today. She smashed Anne Darda (GER) 7:0, then Kateryna Polovinchuk (UKR) 7:2 and finally Martine Christiansen (NOR) 7:1 for her seat in the single elimination round. All three opponent’s points added would not have made Ouschan lose one single set! Her opponent in the next match will be Ana Gradisnik (SLO). Katarzyna Wesolowska (POL) had finished 3rd place in the last 3 Women’s Euro-Tour events in Treviso (2x) and Albufeira. This time, she is up for more.

2017 Eurotour Austria Open - Mario He takes the title on home turf

Mario He (AUT) winning his second Euro-Tour title

歐洲巡迴賽-奧地利公開賽男子組爭奪於近日落下戰幕,主場作戰的好手Mario He 9-8驚險戰勝A. Ouschan後再在決賽中 9-2 血洗西班牙年輕好手Francisco Sanchez-Riuz,大勝奪冠的同時也收獲了個人第2座歐巡賽冠軍獎杯。

主場作戰的Mario He晉級之路非常艱辛,在輸掉雙敗首場比賽後,陷入到了漫長的敗部廝殺中。敗部殺回後,他頗有勢不可擋之勢:9-8力挫波蘭好手Tomasz Kaplan,9-3橫掃英國名將Daryl Peach,9-4大勝荷蘭的Marco Teutscher,再在9-8拿下與Albin Ouschan的德比戰後闖入決賽。決賽另一方是西班牙年輕好手Francisco Sanchez-Riuz,他的表現同樣非常出色:9-2橫掃Mark Gray,9-6力克Konstantin Stepanov,9-5挑落Nick van den Berg,9-7擊退德國新星Joshua Filler

決賽進程令人大跌眼球,比賽完全成為了Mario He的個人秀,他以一波瘋狂的連勝輕易地以8-1拿到了大把賽點,盡管Sanchez竭力扳回一局,但也無濟於事,Mario He再拿一局後便以9-2的懸殊比分血洗了對手,摘得個人第2個歐巡賽桂冠。

奪冠之後,Mario表示: “我感覺像飛在太空中,比賽開始時我表現得非常糟糕,而現在我奪冠了,難以置信。雖然在在單敗階段有很多強大的對手,但我表現得非常頑強。這是我第二次拿到歐巡賽冠軍,這是如此的夢寐以求。”
