Belgium has proven to be a happy stomping ground for Evans this season with her Belgian Women’s Open success coming just four months after she triumphed in the European Women’s Masters in Neerpelt.

It marks the third title in total that the Englishwoman has captured during this term having also won the Eden Women’s Masters in November.

Evans will no doubt be delighted to get one over on her closest foe Ng, with the pair by far and away the top two players on the World Women’s Tour.

Hong Kong’s Ng, the reigning world champion, took the opening frame of the final but Evans subsequently dominated the clash.



Both semi-finals were dramatic affairs as Evans scraped passed home favourite Wendy Jans in a decider and Ng progressed to the title decider in similar fashion with a 4-3 victory over Nutcharut Wongharuthai.

The latter, still only a teenager, has reached the last four of every event that she has entered this season – underlining her worth as one of the biggest prospects in women’s snooker.

Elsewhere in the inaugural Belgian Women’s Open, Caty Dahaene won the seniors event while Steph Daughtery emerged victorious in both the Challenge Cup and the under-21 tournaments.

The next major competition on the women’s circuit is the big one, the 2019 World Women’s Championship.
