Ali Sharafat was Juneja's fourth round match-up and he despatched of him in a similar fashion to his previous opponents, as he proceeded to 71-31 and 64-37 frame scores in his favor for his fourth successive 2-0 win.
In the final round Juneja completed an excellent Tour event victory without losing a single frame as he defeated Riyaz Bardai 2-0.
The USSA would like to offer its gratitude and appreciation to Carom Café Billiards for their successful hosting of two events on this season's USSA Tour and hope to receive their continued support for next season's USSA Tour, and thank all the players who participated in the event.
