Sweden on Top

July 2nd, 2010  |  Published in Breaking News

Well, it took quite some time for a 1400 to appear on the horizon but that barrier was thoroughly beaten in squad 9 as

Robert Andersson

Sweden’s Robert Andersson from Gothenburg opened as normal with 245, 217 and 214. Then he upped the gears to show just what can be done on these lanes with 265, 264 and 266 for a 795 three-game series. He now tops the leader board with 1471, a total that is 82 pins clear of now second-placed Stuart Wlliams of England.

London pro shop operator Matt Miller showed English talent by being second on the squad with 1358 although his high game was just a 246 in the fourth, but consistent bowling brings him ninth place in the overall standings, tied with Pasi Uotila, the winner of squad 8.

So Andersson automatically moves into Sunday’s finals and will most certainly be in the top eight to receive those vital byes into the later rounds.

“I really didn’t think I would bowl so well today,” remarked a very happy Swede, “I bowled OK yesterday and felt I had a good shot. I was trying to beat my previous score but at first it didn’t look as though I was going to beat it.
“For us, the results of the tournament are not our biggest concern. we want to see the center before the World Championships next month, check out the city and see what options there are with restaurants and hotels. Of course, it is a big bonus when you get a feel of the lanes.

“I got a lot of confidence after winning the EBT Masters in Aalborg last month. I’v been changing my game and changing what I believe is my approach to bowling.  Inputting more energy and getting more practise. When those changes are working, then it is easier to continue the pattern. I’m on my way and to me the World Championships is the big goal and has been for at least a year now.

“We had two weeks off before this tournament during which we were not allowed to bowl. That stopped us getting stale and we all feel much better for that now.”
