Reanne Evans won the 2022 Scottish Women’s Open on Sunday after a 4-2 victory over Mink Nutcharut in the final.
It was the Englishwoman’s second title of the 2022/23 campaign following her success in the UK Women’s Championship at the end of July.
Evans entered the competition at The Q Club in Glasgow in the last 16, comfortably overcoming Zoe Killington 3-0 in her opening fixture.
Another whitewash win in the last eight helped her through to the semi-finals, where she had a break of 89 en route to a 4-2 defeat of long-term rival Ng On Yee.
In the title-deciding affair, there weren’t many significant breaks with reigning women’s world champion Nutcharut.
The pair was locked at 2-2 when Evans clinched what proved to be a pivotal fifth frame on the colours to move to within the brink of glory, before duly wrapping up the triumph in the sixth frame.
It represented a 65th title of an incredible career for Evans on the World Women’s Snooker Tour and helped to prove that her young Thai opponent hasn’t taken over the women’s game just yet.
Jamie Hunter – winner of the recent US Women’s Open and the Australian Women’s Open – was well beaten by Rebecca Kenna in the quarter-finals.
The next event on the World Women’s Snooker Tour will be the Eden Women’s Masters in November at the Frames Sports Bar in London.
