Sport Briefly / Snooker: Fisher lands another world title

Click to follow
Allison Fisher confirmed her status as the world's best woman snooker player by winning her seventh world professional title, and her third in a row, in New Delhi yesterday. She reeled off the final five frames to decide a contest with her third-seeded compatriot Stacey Hillyard that was closer than the 7-3 result suggested. Fisher won the final frame of the opening session to level the match at 3-3 and did not give Hillyard a chance after the resumption. 'It was the toughest final I have played in,' Fisher said.
