In the Predator Veldhoven Open 2019, Kateryna Polovinchuk (UKR) defeated Valeriia Trushevskaia (RUS) in the winner’s qualification round with 7:1.

Based upon Trushevskaia’s recent performance, the match was actually expected to be a close affair between the two players. Polovinchuk is a very experienced player with a long history on the women’s tour whereas Trushevskaia is just starting her career, having won the 10-ball title in last week’s Youth European Championships. So the match was experience vs hunger. But Trushevskaia could not live up to her performance in that match. She missed too many shots whereas Polovinchuk played as rock solid as she usually does. Towards the end of the match, Trushevskaia was obviously frustrated with her game and even missed an easy 9-ball being 6:1 down. Polovinchuk ended the match and has booked her seat in the round of the last 16 players single elimination.

Other remarkable results include Jasmin Ouschan (AUT) winning 7:2 over Ewa Bak (POL). Tina Vogelmann (GER) won unexpectedly clear with 7:2 over favoured Oliwia Czuprynska (POL). One round earlier, Melanie Suessenguth (GER) took down Kristina Tkach (RUS) 7:6 in an epic thriller.
