safety  shot  were  enough  for  Ouschan  to take  a  4:0  lead  over  Antonijevic.  That  was  all  that  could  be  seen  from  the Croatian  in  the  first  four  racks  of  the  match. She  missed  in  the  first  rack,  Ouschan  ran two, she played a bad safety  shot in the third rack and Ouschan ran another two. So when Antonijevic went  to the table to take her third break  shot,  she  was  0:4 down,  having  made only  2 mistakes so far.  Frustrating,  but  that’s what  you  get  when  you  make  mistakes against  a player like Ouschan on a European Championship  level.  In  the  fifth  rack,  Antonijevic  missed  another  shot  and Ouschan ran out again, getting on the hill with 5:0. The final rack provided some more  action  since  both  players  got  engaged  in  a  safety  exchange,  but  again Ouschan  had the better end on her side.  6:0 was the just  result  in the end for Ouschan.  When  asked  whether  she still  suffers from last  night’s defeat  in  the semi-final of  the 10-ball,  she replied:  „I have won almost everything so far  so it is  hard to set new goals. Of course I want to win every time I play  but yesterday, Marika played better than me and deserved the win.  Now I  look into the future and do my best to collect some more medals.“
Other notable results in the men’s division include Dominic Jentsch (GER) defeating Fabio  Petroni (ITA)  by  a whisker with 8:7. At  7:7,  Petroni was at  the table and had all the chances  in the world to finish the match in his favor. But he ran out of position for the 8-ball and had to play  a jump-shot  in order to try  and pocket  the  8-ball.  He  failed,  and  Jentsch  could  run  the  rack  and  claim  the victory. Another  notable result  is  the  8:3 victory  of  Stephan Cohen (FRA)  over Andreas Roschkowsky (GER).
In the wheelchair division,  Henrik  Larsson (SWE)  handed a 5:0 doughnut to Craig Welsh (GBR).
