The 2022 Welsh Open

14 March 2022 No Comment

The 2022 Welsh Open was played from 28 February to 6 March 2022, in Celtic Manor, Newport, Wales. Jordan Brown was the defending champion.
The event was won by Joe Perry, who beat Judd Trump by 9-5 in the final.

This was obviously disappointing for Judd but also encouraging as this was the first time this season that he progressed past the QFs in a ranking event. He was gracious in defeat as he declared: “Joe put me under pressure from the start. He potted some cracking long balls, scored the heavier and at the crucial times he was potting the crucial balls. It was a little bit of an off day for me but Joe was the best player of the whole week and thoroughly deserved the win.” (source:WST)

All Grove players won their opening match, but Mark Selby and Michael Holt lost in the last 64. Mark, who had previously spoken openly about his mental health issues, subsequently decided to take a break from snooker. He intends to come back to defend his World title at the Crucible.

Ding lost in the last 32 round, beaten 4-2 by Ronnie O’Sullivan. Both Neil Robertson and Ali Carter reached the QFs, beaten by Judd Trump and Jack Lisowski respectively.
