Joshua Filler Secures Fifth Consecutive Euro Tour Victory at Treviso Open

Germany’s Joshua Filler secured his third consecutive victory in the DYNAMIC BILLARD Euro Tour, clinching the title at the Treviso Open by defeating Radoslaw Babica from Poland with a convincing score of 9-3. This marked Filler’s fifth consecutive win in the events he participated in, with his winning streak commencing in Slovenia the previous October and including triumphs in Austria, two more in Slovenia, and now Italy. Despite missing three events in the seven-tournament ranking cycle, Filler remains an impressive No. 2 in the rankings, a position that may soon be rectified.

Radoslaw Babica, a seasoned player in the Euro Tour and the longest-serving member of the formidable Polish squad, had only reached one final previously in 2007, where he lost to Bruno Muratore in Spain.

The match started with Filler taking the lead, and despite Babica’s attempts, Filler continued to dominate, capitalizing on opportunities and maintaining a substantial advantage. The final score of 9-3 reflected Filler’s control and proficiency throughout the match.

Filler expressed his delight at the achievement, emphasizing his comfort and confidence in his game, particularly highlighting his strong break and positioning. He acknowledged the positive momentum, having won the last five tournaments he entered, and expressed gratitude for the missed opportunities by his opponents that he capitalized on. Filler is not only savoring the victory but also recognizing the significance of Tour ranking points alongside the prize money.

The Euro Tour tournaments follow a 9-ball format, featuring a double-elimination structure leading to the last 32 competitors and then transitioning to single elimination until the conclusion. Matches are races to 9 racks with alternate breaks, adding an extra layer of competition to the prestigious tour.
