I lost my match for the single elimination so I ended up in 33 place together with Line Kjorsvik,  Ina Kaplan,  Kamila Khodjaeva and Monica Webb. Tough day for the westerns. Kelly Fisher made it through (winning 7-6) but lost her first match in the single elimination against Fu Xiaofang in the tv arena. I think she did amazing considering her last few months.

Anyway,  we now got four western players left and we will all be there to support them. Caroline Roos,  Jasmin Michel,  Allison Fisher and Karen Corr are all playing at 13. And also Jeanette Lee is playing Pan Xiaoting in the tv arena:)

Off to the venue!



Departure is closing in, this time we play in Guilin China, from 15th -18th of october. This is the first year in Guilin and we are all looking forward to explore what is said to be one of the most beautiful landscapes in China. My visa is ok, the flights are booked and good, the hotel booked, the Cyclop balls on the practice table, all in all I am getting ready to go:)

Alison Chang has been kind enough to send me the players list, she will post it on her blog later. (She is having some technical problems today). Team Europe is looking good:) Also I have read up on the chinese website, www.nineball.com.cn, and see we are playing with 1 on the spot, three point rule and 45 sec shot-clock. Good to know:)
