Judd wins the China Open 2016

29 March 2016 No Comment

Beijing, China – 28 March – 3 April 2016.

Judd won the China Open for the second time this week-end, beating Ricky Walden by 10-4 in the Final. Congratulations Judd! And Ricky too who played in his second final in just over a week …

Only Judd Trump had survived the first two days of the China Open television stage in Beijing and in fact he didn’t even play: his opponent, Stuart Carrington had to withdraw with ill-health. Neil, Cao Yupeng (who’s first round match was held over), Li hang and Yu Delu all made an early exit.

Judd beat Ricky Walden by 10-4, from 1-3 down, to win his second China Open on Sunday, April 3, 2016. Congratulations to Judd, he was very solid all tournament and climbed to n°5 in the rankings ahead of the World Championship. Well done to Ricky as well: this was his second final in just 8 days, having traveled to China from Manchester last minute. No wonder, he was probably a bit tired …

This is an excerpt:

“I’m very happy to win this again,” said Trump. “It’s the first time I have won a tournament twice and it gives me a lot of confidence.

“I didn’t play well at the start of the match, but from 3-1 down I played better and built a good lead. Ricky struggled today and my safety was better than his. I didn’t play as well as I did earlier in the week but it’s a good result.

“Every time I come here I try my hardest. I started well in my first match this week and then kept it up. I was never really in trouble, the hardest game was against Mark King in the quarter-finals when I came from 3-2 down to win 5-3. Otherwise I didn’t drop many frames.

“At 9-3 I lost my concentration a bit, but that helped me to get my focus back and I made a good break in the last frame.”
