5 February 2010 No Comment


Judd Trump wasted no time in booking his place for the final stages at Beijing. He beat Tom Ford 5-1 and rattled in breaks of 114 and 100 on the way.

Judd will play Peter Ebdon in the last 32 – the tournament begins on 29 March.


Both Matt Selt and Mei Xiwen were defeated in their second round matches today. Matt lost 4-5 to Rod Lawler, going down 49-62 in the deciding frame – despite a break of 105 earlier in the match. Xiwen was up against an in-form Robert Milkins who ran away the 5-1 winner.

Jin Long lost 5-2 in his second round match against Jimmy Robertson and Liu Song was defested by the same scoreline by Sam Baird.


There were wins in the first qualifying round today for Grove players Matt Selt and Mei Xiwen. Matt beat Mark Boyle 5-2 including a break of 134 in the first frame and also had breaks of 59, 96 and 54. Xiwen will be very pleased to have won a tough encounter with Noppadol Sangnil 5-4. Xiwen took the eight frame 61-58 with a break of 52 and then won the decider with a break of 92.

Zhang Anda also had a very close game but was unlucky to lose 5-4 to Chris Norbury despite making breaks of 77, 67 and 59.

Li Hang was unfortunate to come up against an unstoppable David Gray who won 5-0 including a break of 134.
