Sabrilla Brunet has already made history at the WEPF World 8-Ball Pool Championships by becoming the first French player to reach the ladies singles final.
Now she can emphasise her status in the game’s record books by going on to take the title.
However, standing between Brunet and the trophy on Wednesday afternoon is reigning champion, Amy Beauchamp.
The Nottingham based star reached the final for a second successive year with a 7-5 win over three-time champion and 2016 World Masters winner, Emma Cunningham.
In contrast, Brunet, an experienced 33-year-old from Lens, who has multiple World and European titles in other pool disciplines, reached the final with a 7-0 whitewash of Australian Kolbe Poole.
It was a superb performance by the unseeded French star who has blazed a glory trail throughout the competition.
She started with a 6-0 win over Ireland’s Louise Maher and followed up with a 6-1 victory over England’s Anne-Louise Arkle in the last 32.
Former world champion, Kirsty-Lee Davies was brushed aside 6-1 in the last 16 before Lisa Wray went the same way in the quarter-finals.
And Brunet completed her virtually unopposed passage to the final by sinking Poole’s hopes in superb style.
However, she knows Beauchamp will present a major obstacle in her bid to become world champion. When they met earlier this year in the first round of the European Championship, Beauchamp finished a 5-4 winner.
