Final Eight Set in Amway Cup
Mar 6, 2010, 2:50 PM

Kim (above) defeated world No. 1 Karen Corr, 7-5, in the round of 16.
Heading into the final day at the Amway Women's World 9-Ball Open, eight women are still alive in the hunt for the year's first major international title.

Unlike 2009, where the top international events were dominated by players who strictly stay in Asia, the Women's Professional Billiard Association is well represented at the event in Taipei, Taiwan. Five of the eight players are top-ranked WPBA stars. Vivian Villarreal, Ga Young Kim, Allison Fisher, Kelly Fisher and Yu Ram Cha are all alive heading into the final day of competition.

The quarters, semis and final will all be held on Sunday. The first round of matches will begin at 10:30 a.m. local time, with the final scheduled for 7:50 p.m.

The four quarterfinals will be:
Chen Si-Ming vs. Yu Han
Chan Shu-Han vs. Kelly Fisher
Ga Young Kim vs. Allison Fisher
Vivian Villarreal vs. Yu Ram Cha
