KING KEITH CROWNED SENIORS CHAMPION AGAIN
Keith Brewer is on top of the world once more and hopes not to come down for some time.
The 55-year-old Poole potter defeated Marcel Micallef 8-1 to lift the WEPF World Seniors singles title for a third time in five years.
And after lifting the trophy Brewer appealed to organisers for a change to the format in future years.
“I can’t tell you how happy I am,” he said after reeling off five successive frames to beat his Maltese rival I feel happier with this one than I did with the others.
“I struggled last year after losing the final in the circumstances I did.
“It knocked my game for about six months,” admitted Brewer defeated 8-6 by Gray in 2015 after the Australian fluked a crucial ball in what proved to be the final frame.
“I was so determined to win it back but I had a really difficult draw.
“Sometimes that is not a bad thing because you have got to turn up with you’re A game.
“I practiced for a couple of weeks before I came and I just wanted to try and peak when I got here. I wanted to hit the floor running and I did.”
Brewer beat Gray 6-3 in the last 32 and double Seniors World Masters champion, Stacey Vine, in the last 16.
“I really hope they bring in seedings for the seniors,” said the new champion.
“It’s so unfair. In Steve’s case, he has travelled all the way over here to defend his title and he’s had to play me in the second round.
“He deserves not to play the likes of me and Stacey until the semi-finals and finals.Let’s hope they can sort something out in the future.”
