York Chronicles – Day 7

It was quarter finals day in York and what a day that was!

Whilst Selby made short work of his match against Matt Selt, winning 6-1, all the other quarter finals went to a decider. David Grace who had never gone past the last 32 in a ranking event before, booked his semi final spot by beating Martin Gould 6-5 from 5-1 down. He will meet Liang Wenbo, who started his match with 3 centuries but got pegged back to 5-5 by Marco Fu, before prevailing in the final frame. Neil Robertson beat John Higgins by 6-5, having lead 3-1 at the MSI. John Higgins made 3 centuries during that match, reaching the 600 career centuries mark.
