Stevens reached the semis
Matthew Stevens beat fellow countryman Ryan Day 13-5 to reach the penultimate stage of this beautiful competition that the World Championship is, the semi-finals.

If at the beginning of the match the lads played it simple and shared frames up until two apiece, by the end of the first session Day was putting his nose in front at 5-3 with breaks of 80, 39 and 44.

However, Stevens started the second session very confident of his game, runs of 44 and 48 helping him to draw level, while a series of 46, 46, 40 and 63 were winning him all the remaining six frames.

The scoreline was now 11-5 and Day had a lot to think about and some serious catching up to do next time they were meeting.

Sadly for Ryan it just didn't happen, Stevens closing the match with breaks of 38, 36 and 41 to secure himself a place in the semi-finals where he's meeting with the winner of Robertson v. O’Sullivan match.
