Amateur female snooker player to compete against men


An amateur snooker player is set to become the first woman ever to play equally against men in the final of a ranking tournament.

Evans is one of the 64 players to have qualified after she defeated Thailand's Thepchaiya Un-Nooh in Gloucester on Tuesday.

BBC Breakfast asked her how she feels about her big break.
