Bai Yulu vs. Mink Nutcharut in World Women’s Snooker Championship Final

On Sunday, the World Women’s Snooker Championship in Dongguan Changping will witness an electrifying showdown between China’s rising star Bai Yulu and Thailand’s seasoned player Mink Nutcharut.

At just 20 years old, Bai has already clinched the world under-21 title this week and is now aiming for her first major victory in women’s snooker. Meanwhile, Nutcharut, aged 24, seeks to secure her second world title after her triumph in 2022.

In a thrilling semi-final encounter, Bai demonstrated her resilience by overcoming a 3-0 deficit against the formidable 12-time champion Reanne Evans, ultimately prevailing 5-3. Despite Evans’ impressive breaks of 68 and 76 in the early frames, Bai seized momentum after winning a crucial fourth frame on the colors. Post-interval, she mounted a remarkable comeback, claiming victory in four consecutive frames. This marks Bai’s second consecutive appearance in the final, having finished as the runner-up to Baipat Siripaporn in 2023.

On the other side of the bracket, Nutcharut, the reigning women’s world number one, cruised to a commanding 5-0 victory over Hong Kong’s Ng On Yee in the semi-finals.

The highly anticipated final, contested over a best-of-11 format, will kick off at 12pm local time on Sunday. The champion will earn a coveted place on the World Snooker Tour for the next two seasons.
