Mark Selby has withdrawn from this year's Shanghai Masters after the sad news of his father-in-law's death.

"The Jester" was due to play David Grace today, the player getting a bye to the Last 16 round as a result of Selby's withdrawal.

SML blog would like to offer sincere condolences to the entire family.

Yesterday, World Snooker announced that Ricky Walden withdrew from the tournament also, after his wife gave birth to the couple's first child.
