Veronika Ivanovskaia (GER) is through to the second winner’s round at the Predator Treviso Open in Treviso, Italy. She defeated her teammate Tina Vogelmann (GER) 7:6 in an exciting match.

Both players had a walk-over in their first round so they actually met in the first winner’s round of the event. Throughout the whole match, Vogelmann was always ahead with one rack. Ivanovskaia held on to her, not letting the advantage of Vogelmann get bigger than one point. Then, at 6:6 Veronika Ivanovskaia’s break shot was coming up. She had two balls down but no shot on the lowest numbered ball on the table, the 2-ball. She played a push-out and an exchange of safety shots evolved from it. Ivanovskaia came out winning this safety battle, taking the match with 7:6 over Vogelmann.

In another exciting match of today, Kristina Zlateva (BUL) defeated Louise Furberg (SWE) with 7:5. She then needed to go up against Kateryna Polovinchuk (UKR) who took her down with the same result and sent Zlateva to the loser’s side.

Both sisters Rademakers won their first 2 rounds as well and that was pretty remarkable. Tamara won against Qiu and Kuleikova and Sister Melissa against Shut and Czuprynska what is really good. Sonny┬┤s BS sponsored player Nathaly Rohmer lost the first match but played a fantastic second match against Chernik. For shopping in our billiard store look at http://www.sonnys.be
