MANILA, Philippines – Rubilen “Bingkay” Amit believes her recent Women’s 10-Ball title win over England’s Kelly Fisher was God-sent.
The Cebuana ace said she felt that way even when she was lagging behind Fisher twice during their 10-Ball finals duel.
“[The] first time I've experienced it po (lagging behind), I was really at ease,” Amit said in an interview on ANC’s "Hardball." “For some reason, parang I was thinking na yes she maybe ahead but I really believe that God will give it to me.”
Fisher led series at 3-1 and 6-4, but the diminutive Filipina rallied to lead 7-6 before the game was tied at 7-all.
Amit admitted committing at least two errors in her duel against Fisher. But she tried her best to keep the gap close before taking the last three racks to reclaim the title she first won in 2009.
“Actually when I was down naman and saw she was smoking hot sa game na 'yon, I told myself I'll keep it close and hopefully sa end game makapanalo,” she said.
Amit pocketed $21,000, or roughly over P900,000, for her efforts.
