|John Higgins secures a place into the next round|
After Rory McLeod defeated Ricky Walden in a match that didn’t seem to be ending this year, another match was following the same pattern. Still, the fact that the mighty John Higgins was now part of the equation should have changed things, right? Well, if Higgins would have been playing at his beat, yes....but he wasn’t in a glorious form, with all do respect, so the match against McLeod was more a battle of strong nerves and patience, rather than a battle of cues.
|The man that makes slow go slower - Rory McLeod|
The last frame was going to be a very tense one as Higgins won it just by being five points ahead of McLeod (64-59), but the match was over, thank God!
With a final result of 13-7, Higgins will face an "old" opponent of his, Ronnie O`Sullivan. It will be interesting to see if he can cope with speed, after all that "slowliness" .
