No Dry Eyes: Webb Wins At Last
After 10 years, Monica Webb shatters the semifinal barrier for first WPBA title.
Story by Mason King; Photos by Anne Craig-WPBA
The full weight of pocketing that final 9 ball didn't sink into Monica Webb's psyche for a minute or two. In fact, as the crowd roared and shutterbugs flashed, Webb practically floated over to her opponent, Kelly Fisher, for a quick congratulatory clinch. She turned to find Helena Thornfeldt - her best friend for more than a decade - and saw tears streaming down her face. Jeanette Lee descended with an ESPN microphone and camera in tow for an interview, and even the Black Widow was sobbing. And then the straight-jacketed, single-minded focus that comes with competition began to fall away in Webb's mind, and reality set in.
