|The Welsh Williams making his remarkable comeback|
eeded (since the start of this tournament) to come back from 0-2 and actually win the match. The majority has made it until 2-2 and the next frame was won by the player who opened the score. But this was about to change. Williams was leading, but Ding was at the table making his way to win the last frame, when he tried to pot the green but failed leaving Mark with a good potting position. So the Welsh came to the table and make the most of Ding’s error to win 3-2 the match and reach the semi-finals. What a comeback! And what a match! Both cue men played wonderfully!
|Peter Ebdon reached the semis|
In the end, Peter was the one who claimed the victory, winning the last frame and ending the match at 3-1. Too bad for Gouldie, who really had it in him. This guy will have a bright future in snooker if he keeps up the good work. On the other hand, I’m happy to report that Ebbo was playing much better than in his last two matches and to be honest I’m glad for him he reached the semi-finals, although that meant that Gould had to lose. That’s the deal with snooker and sports in general, there can be only one winner.
|The Rocket...rocks! ;-)|
At 3-1, Ronnie has a cozy place in the semis, where he’ll be playing Ebbo. "I am glad my match against Peter tomorrow is a best of five. A longer match would be tough. ", said The Rocket after the match. :-)) A fast player against a slow but very good one. What a match this will be! ;-)
So, Australia will face Wales in a match were talent, strategy and self-confidence will play the main roles.
Not much of a century breaks day: Ronnie O`Sullivan (116).
So, the semis are today, but also the big final (this is the only match were "the best of five rule" doesn’t apply anymore, being replaced with "the best of nine" rule) :
Mark Williams v. Neil Robertson
Peter Ebdon v. Ronnie O`Sullivan
