18-11-'13 Therese Klompenhouwer qualified for Dutch Masters
She had only one last chance to qualify herself for the Dutch Masters, the best 16 of the Netherlands in 3cushion.
The Dutch and European champion women Therese Klompenhouwer, was on the 18th place after 3 grand prix tournaments. She had to play herself with the best 16 of this 4th and last grand prix in Capelle ad Ijssel and hopefully the nrs. 16 and 17 wouldn't. Klompenhouwer had no problems in the qualification round and qualified for the main tournament. The nr. 17 of the rankinglist, Sander Jonen from Amsterdam didn't, so she was a little bit closer to the Masters.
Klompenhouwer came in a tough group with Wim vd Berg, Jean van Erp and the nr 2 of Holland Dave Christiani. She lost in a close match against Jean van Erp, but managed to beat Wim vd Berg ánd surprisely also Dave Christiani. She did what she had to do and was with the best 16 of this Grand prix. The day after the nr. 16 of the rankinglist, Herman Slikker had to play. He didn't play well and lost 2 out of 3, so he was out to! So that gave Klompenhouwer a ticket to the Dutch Masters.
Klompenhouwer: " I dreamed of this scenario, but never thought it would really happen. I knew I was in a difficult group with van Erp and Christiani and I am proud I went on to the best 16, by beating Dave Christiani. I am the Dutch champion women, but the level with the men is much higher. If you can achieve to be with the best 16, that is great! And I did it. I did what I had to do and the others didn't, so I deserve my place. I am very happy." In the 1/8 final she lost against good old Frans van Schaik, but that couldn't spoil the happiness.
The Dutch Masters will be organized from 16-19 January 2014 in Kaatsheuvel. Jean Paul de Bruijn defends his title. Dick Jaspers in the current nr. 1 of the Rankinglist.

06-05-'13 Therese Klompenhouwer winner AEJ Femina Belgian Open
HALLE-ZOERSEL - Therese Klompenhouwer has showed once again she is the best player in the world of three cushion. The Dutch player won the Femina Belgian Open in a final against the Japanese Namiko Hayashi (30-17 in 31) and was in a strong field superior from the start. The only conclusion can be that the European champion is the world’s best, although she has not won that title in her career.
With her average she dominated nevertheless all the other players in the Femina Open with top players as the two Japanese girls, Karina Jetten, Gülsen Degener and Danielle le Bruyn. Therese finished with 0.987. The Japanese world champion, Natsumi Higashiuchi, was already outplayed in the semifinals and averaged only 0.581.
,,That’s what I explained after the World championship in Tokyo: a jet lag and the fatigue factor play a major role in such an event, as is was for us when we played in Tokyo,'' said Klompenhouwer, referring to her disappointing performance in Japan.
The world’s gold she didn’t win so far, all other tournaments in which Therese Klompenhouwer played, she was by far the best. The Dutch championship, the European championships in Brandenburg, a title with her team in Belgium, promotion with her team to the top division in the Netherlands and now the Belgian Open, a tournament with a world class line-up.
The Japanese girls came up to the semifinals, in which Natsumi Higashiuchi eventually was eliminated by the other Japanese girl. The world champion from Tokyo could not show her class during the Femina Open. Namiko Hayashi, her compatriot, won the match 25-22, in a very moderate performance (41 innings).
Therese Klompenhouwer and Karina Jetten played a tough match in the other semifinal. ,,It was my hardest game,'' said Klompenhouwer later. ,,We both played very defensively and got bad positions. But in a tournament like this, the win is more important than the average. So I could not maintain the average of the first day.''
In the final against Hayashi, the Dutch player made a quick gap and built it up to a comfortable lead. ,,Near the end, I was some sloppy, I could have finished earlier’’, she said later.
The prize money (thousand euros) was a nice boost, but to win the tournament was much more important. ,,It really feels a bit like revenge for the World championship,'' Therese said.
,,I want to emphasize that it was a fantastic organization, an example for many other tournaments.’’
The next mission is on high level again: in New York (15 and 16 July) Klompenhouwer will meet two Asian top players: Natsumi Higashiuchi and Orie Hida.
The final score of the Femina Belgian Open (top eight with averages and runs):
1 Therese Klompenhouwer, 0.987-8
2 Namiko Hayashi 0.700-6
3 Karina Jetten 0.727-7
4 Natsumi Higashuchi 0.581-5
5 Marianne Mortensen 0.617-4
6 Gülsen Degener 0.604-6
7 Danielle le Bruyn 0.507-7
8 Jaimie Buelens 0.507-7.
Jutta Aschenbach won the tournament on the small table with 0.521 average ahead of Sandra Verbruggen, Karine Jennen and Martine Goethint. In the tournament free game Angeline Marine was the winner with 3.00 average.
