“Ewa’s mantle of ‘Leading Lady of Billiards’ is so fitting. She’s been one of the people I looked up to as a kid growing up and she is one of the classiest people in our sport. I can’t think of anyone better to captain the Americans and Europeans on the team in the defining event of ladies pool”, said Charlie Williams, Executive Producer of the Queens Cup.

“I was really glad when I heard Ewa was chosen for our team. She has been playing as good as I’ve ever seen”, said Jennifer Barretta, Ewa’s teammate for Manila.

“I’m very excited to play in the 亚美娱乐 AM8.com Queens Cup to play for Team West. America has been my home for most of my career and it’s great to be able to represent both USA and my Swedish heritage”, said Ewa. “Being selected as the captain of Team West is a thrill and I really feel that we have a extremely solid team that may surprise people .” 

When asked on her Queens Cup predictions, she replied, “Asia is full of talented young players of course, but I think our team has a lot more experience. Plus we have Jennifer Barretta who is a notorious student of the game and she will be handy in the 10-Ball matches and preparations.”
 
The Queens Cup will showcase the rivalry between the Asians and their western counterparts in Europe and USA, very similar to the Ryder Cup in golf or Davis Cup in tennis. Elite professional ladies from their respective countries and continents are selected onto two sides representing the East and West. The event will last 3 days in a 10-Ball format that will conclude when one team reaches 10 match wins. Style of play will include singles, doubles, triples, and 4-on-4. Captains will be put to the test to create the best strategy in partnerships and chemistry of match-ups. If the matches go 9 to 9 hill-hill, a final 4-on-4 play will set the scene for the dramatic conclusion.
Ewa Mataya Laurance was born in Gävle, Sweden and has graced the cover of New York Times magazine which impacted the entire sport helping to change the image of the sport from a seedy, men’s dominated game to a professional sport of elegance and class. She has been the longest sponsored player in history of Brunswick Billiards for over 20 years. In 2012 Ewa shocked the world by a flashback comeback defeating the top 3 player son tour in back to back fashion which were Jasmin Ouschan (Austria), Ga Young Kim (Korea) and toppled Allison Fisher (UK) in the finals. Ewa still maintains a top 5 USA ranking and is looked up to by generations of players, men & women, as an exemplary role model. Ewa is also a sports writer with her own monthly feature in Pool & Billiard magazine, as well as a sports commentator for ESPN. In 2004, she was inducted into the Billiard’s America’s Hall of Fame. She has been nicknamed “The Leading Lady of Billiards” and the “Striking Viking”.
