Judd wins the World Grand Prix 2019

12 February 2019 No Comment

Judd Trump beat Ali Carter – an all Grove Final – to win the World Grand Prix 2019, played in Cheltenham from February 4 to February 10, 2019.

This was Judd’s third title of the season, after the Northern Ireland Open 2018 and The Masters 2019. It was Judd’s tenth ranking title in total.

Judd started a bit slowly, only just getting the better of Stuart Carrington in the last 32, and coming out the winner of an error-strewn match against a poor Tom ford in the last 16. But a 5-1 trashing of the World number 1, Mark Selby, in the quarter final really got him going. Barry Hawkins proved to be the hardest opponent to beat: Judd was never in front in their semi-final until the last – deciding – frame. Ali Carter put up a goof fight in the final but Judd dominated the last mini session to seal victory.

Other than Judd and Ali, two more Grove players were involved: Jack Lisowki and Neil Robertson.
