Kelly Fisher defends San Diego title

The latest British snooker pro to join the American pool circuit continues the trend started by Allison Fisher and Karen Corr. This weekend Kelly Fisher won the WPBA San Diego Classic for the second year in a row.

She stormed through the field, beating many of the top pros on the way. In the semi-final she beat the greatest of them all, Allison Fisher, 7-4, before overcoming Corr by the same score in the final.

Corr had earlier beaten yet another Brit, Sarah Ellerby, in the second semi-final.

The win will at least move Kelly into fourth place in the WPBA rankings. With this pace she might soon challenge Allison and and Corr at the very top.

Ellen Van Buren's 9th place means she is the newest touring pro.
