9-ball fever in Paris for French Open weekend

The 4th edition of the French Open by Predator gets underway this Saturday in Paris, France, following several days of qualifying rounds. Over 100 players have registered to do battle at the Replay Billard club, but only one can emerge to claim the title of 2017 French Open champion and the winner’s cheque of 2000€.

As ever, this 9-ball event is to be streamed live and for free by tournament organisers Ebilliard.tv. You can follow selected matches from the TV table through to the final on Sunday. In addition to the main event, a special mixed doubles charity match is organised for Friday evening, presented by Kamui Brand.

2017 French Open by Predator preview

A strong international field is ready to compete for the big prize, including Marc Bijsterbosch, a two-time runner-up at this event in 2015 and 2016. Since narrowly missing out on the French Open crown to Imran Majid last year, Bijsterbosch has won his first European Championship in the men’s division, taking down the 10-ball title in March 2017. He also added a silver medal in 8-ball at the same championships and will be among the main contenders this weekend.

Despite some injury setbacks this year, Neils Feijen still ranks 3rd in the Eurotour rankings, a testament to his consistency at the very top level. In his first appearance at the French Open, the 2014 9-ball world champion will be expected to go deep into the business end of the tournament, if not all the way. Parisian pool fans will certainly be out in strong numbers to watch the Terminator in action live.

Feijen is not the only former world champion at this year’s French Open, as his fellow countryman Huidji See won the 10-ball World Championship in 2011. While See is less of a regular on the pool scene these days, he is still a formidable opponent who absolutely has the potential to win the event. With a terrific trio like that representing the Netherlands, as well as other young stars like Tim de Ruyter and Ivo Aarts, there is a strong chance we could see a Dutch winner of the French Open for the first time.

Of course, the best French players will be out in force too, including French number one Stephan Cohen. The seasoned veteran has been winning national titles across multiple disciplines for many years. He is the reigning French champion in both 9-ball and 10-ball, so is perhaps the best candidate for a winner from the host country.

Other top French players include Alain da Costa and Fabio Rizzi, the current national champions in 14.1 and 8-ball respectively, as well as François Cottance and Alex Montpellier, who have both previously represented their country at the World Cup of Pool.

As ever, it will come down to who brings their best game to the table, with a weekend of top action in store at France’s premiere 9-ball event.
