"I thought I had lost the title after failing to double up in my final frame," said the 28-year-old Vanessa Fung, who won the 2003 Indonesia leg and and 2006 Malaysia leg. "I released my ball a little too quick in the second frame which caused me to miss the spare. I knew if I make no further mistakes, I would have a slim chance.
The victory has also taken Vanessa to the top of the women's tour ranking with 135 points ahead of Thailand leg champion, Angkana Netvriseth tieing with Kim Eun Jung in third with 106 points.
