Kyren Wilson Defeat Ding Junhi 5-1
Kyren Wilson put on a fine display to defeat Ding Junhui 5-1 and go to the last four of the Bank of Beijing China Open.
It is a Good return to form for Wilson ahead of next month’s World Championship. He is broken a run of four consecutive first round defeats and has reached his first semi-final since the Northern Ireland Open in November.
Ding Junhi focus will now turn to the Crucible as he looks to go one better than last year, where he was runner-up to Mark Selby.
Wilson played Great Game throughout the tie and he moved 3-1 ahead at the interval thanks to a run of 55 in the 4th frame.
He had a contender for shot of the season in the first frame after the break. He cut back a red above the blue spot into the bottom pocket from long range and went on to clear with a run of 30 to take the frame on the black. A bitter blow for the home favourite Ding, who now trailed 4-1.
