Feijen wins French Open for the second year running

2010 French OpenNiels Feijen successfully defended his title by winning the 2010 French Open.

In the final the merited Dutchman defeated first-time finalist Craig Osborne (England) 9-2. The victory was worth €5000. Osborne got €3300 for second place.

The semifinals saw Feijen defeating Malta's 2008 winner Tony Drago 9-5. Osborne overcame Dimitri Jungo (Switzerland) 9-3.

This was Feijen's second win in the French Open and sixth Euro Tour win overall, from 11 finals. That puts him in fourth place on the all-time list, only behind the German trio of Ralf Souquet, Oliver Ortmann and Thomas Engert.

The win keeps Feijen in third place in the season's first Euro Tour Ranking. Losing finalist Osborne improved from 14th to ninth. Souquet and Imran Majid (England) stay in first and second respectively.

The tournament was played 11-13 February 2010 at the Leader Billard Club, Paris, France. It was the first event of seven on the 2010 Euro Tour. Next up is the Italy Open which runs from 14-18 March 2010.
