Yesterday saw all the quarter finals matches completed in Shanghai and this time there were little surprise.
In the afternoon, Stuart Bingham had little trouble dispatching of Ali Carter by 5-1. Mark Selby had to work a bit harder against Ryan Day: after being 4-1 down, Ryan battled back to 4-3 before Mark concluded. So, it’s the n°1 vs the n°2 this afternoon in China, meaning morning in Europe.
In the evening, Ding Junhui beat Michael Holt by 5-3 in a very good match, and Stephen Maguire got the better of Michael White by 5-1. So the man in form in this tournament, Stephen Maguire will face the home favourite Ding Junhui.
It should be a very interesting day of snooker. Semi finals are best of 11, so plenty of time for twists and turns!
