A good match, not a great one - nowhere near as good as last year's - with both players having plenty of chances - especially Alex. Both were missing balls that they shouldn't have, but that's the pressure of playing for the World Title for you!

Congratulations to Thorsten for an excellent final match and overall tournament.
