Jari could have sealed the victory in the second game when he only needed to spare home in the final two frames as the Malaysian struggled to find his winning form previously shown in the in semi-final. He could not believe his luck when he struck two perfect pocket shots to see pins 7 and 10 standing and conceding the game to Zulmazran, 173-179.

But in the third and deciding game, the Finn made the best of four strikes-in-a-row putting pressure on Zulmazran, which was evident when he

made numerous mistakes opening the first, second and sixth frames. By the ninth frame, Jari had sealed the match and clinch his first-ever world title and ending the game with 212 to Zulmazran's 185.

"I'm good on short oil but because the finals were played on two different lane conditions, Sami (Konsteri) and I decided to use the urethane ball instead of a reactive one so that I could bowl on extreme right next to the gutter," said the estatic Jari Ratia during his interview with ESPN.

"I'm glad we made the correct decision and it paid off. I was very unlucky to shoot two unbelievable 7-10 splits in the final two frames in the second game but Sami told me to forget about it and go on to the next game.


"Jari is usually comfortable with the second arrow but to bowl on the second board and doing so well is an amazing acheivement for him. But the decision to use the urethane ball made him more comfortable," said the Finish national coach, Sami Konsteri.

The champion had qualified for the knockout stage in seventh position from the three days of qualifying rounds. He moved into the semi-final by dispatching second-seed, Lucas Legnani of Argentina in the quarter-final yesterday.

The runnerup, Zulmazran earned a crack at the title by ending Indonesia's favourite, Ryan Lalisang, 2-1 in the other semi-final. The fifth-seed Malaysian also disposed off Denmark's Jesper Agerbo, 2-1 in yesterday's quarter-final to move into the semis.

"When Jari (Ratia) had two consective 7-10 splits in the second game to give me a second chance, I just didn't take the opportunity," said Zulmazran after losing 1-2 to the Finn in the finals.

"I should have made the necessary adjustments earlier but didn't, so it is my fault. But I'm overall very pleased with my performance as I wanted to at least make the top 8. And to finish second is a great feeling too.

"I had high hopes for Zulmazran as he has been bowling extremely well but this is bowling and sometimes things don't go your way," said Malaysian national coach, Holloway Cheah. Zulmazran settled for US$5,000 while the champion won US$10,000 for his victory.


Malaysia, however took home the women's crown when sixth-seed, Wendy Chai defeated topseed, Karen Marcano of Venezuela, 2-1 in the title match. Marcano edged Wendy, 186-181 in the first game but the Malaysian rebounded with a 200-160 victory over the Venezuelian in the second to move into the deciding match.

When Marcano had a split in the third frame, Wendy gained confidence to knock down four consecutive strikes to open up a 40-pin breather. But an open frame in the seventh from Wendy gave a slim chance to Marcano when she recovered with a double in the sixth and seventh frames.


Wendy Chai

But when the champion regained her composure to shoot a double strike in the next two frames, the match was more or less sealed giving the Malaysian her first-ever world title. Wendy had lost to a South American, Clara Guerrero in the 2005 World Ranking Masters to finish as runnerup.

"Although I lost the first game, I was a confident that I can win the next two games as Holloway has lined me up on which line to bowl when I was warming up," said Wendy when interviewed by ESPN after her historical victory.


"And when I drew level after the second game, I knew I had a good chance to take the title. Holloway gave me a lot of confidence and encouragement throughout the final. I wish to dedicate this victory to my dad, who passed away last year and my mom, my coach and the whole team.

"We both made the decision on the line to bowl before the start and it paid off handsomely," said the delighted national chief coach, Holloway Cheah. "During the practice, Wendy kept warming up on the short oil so that she will be stronger.

Wendy had disposed off fourth-seed, Krista Pollanen of Finland, 2-0 in the second semi-final to book her place in the finals while Karen Marcano ousted Latvia's Diana Zavjalova, 2-1 in the first semi.
