Allison Fisher takes long road to victory

The Great Lakes Classic had an unusual beginning, but Allison Fisher still came out a winner in the end.

She lost her very first match to Chinese sensation Xiaoting Pan, but managed to come through the one loss bracket to make the single elimination stage. Players left behind included Melissa Herndon and Wendy Jans.

In the final 16 she hammered poster girl Jennifer Barretta, before edging biggest rival Karen Corr 9-8. Kim White was no match in the semis, going down 9-4. In the final she beat experienced Texan Vivian Villareal 7-4 to pocket the £13,000 first prize.
