Ng On Yee Wins Winchester Women’s Open

Ng On Yee beat Nutcharut Wongharuthai to claim the Winchester Women’s Open title on Sunday.

The Hong Kong cueist thrashed the women’s world champion 4-0 in the title-deciding showdown.

In what was the last event of the 2021/22 campaign on the World Women’s Snooker Tour, Ng lost only two frames across her four matches.

Entering at the last 16 stage, the three-time former women’s world champion beat Harriet Haynes 3-1 before a quarter-final whitewash of Rebecca Kenna.

A 4-1 semi-final victory over Ploychompoo Laokiatphong followed before the onslaught in the final, with Wongharuthai uncharacteristically off her game.

The young Thai star had earlier knocked out Reanne Evans in the last four, but she ultimately ran out of steam at the final hurdle.

The Winchester Women’s Open triumph for Ng represents her second tournament success of this season following her previous glory in the Eden Women’s Masters.

Kenna, meanwhile, will be an incoming professional player for the 2022/23 campaign after her spot on the Main Tour was confirmed.

The women’s world number four will receive a two-year card as she’s the highest ranked competitor without one already assured.

Evans and Ng are finishing the first year of their two-year cards, but two more places will be granted for next term with Wongharuthai being the other beneficiary.

Ng, Evans, Wongharuthai, and Evans will also all be competing in the World Snooker Championship qualifiers this week at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield.
