After S.Murphy took tactical ineptitude to new heights, even for him, during his 10-9 defeat to J.Jones, and we narrowly missed out on our 1st midnight finish, we move onto day 4. Today, sees one of the most anticipated 1st round matches with S.Bingham taking on J.Lisowski. Bingham has returned from his betting ban, and has played well since his return (including reaching the final in Romania). He comes here much fresher than usual and he does have good memories here following his World Title win a couple of years ago. That said, his overall record here is generally very poor. Lisowski looks like he is finally bringing a level of consistency to his game, and he is playing really well at present. He played really well in The China Open before capitulating to K.Wilson in QF, and a question mark remains about his temperament under pressure. He is really confident at present though, and is scoring really heavily - this looks a high-class 1st round match.

Elsewhere, we see M.Williams and N.Robertson start their campaigns. A big question remains as to whether either of them truly believe they could possibly beat R.O'Sullivan here over 3 sessions. Had O'Sullivan lost in R1 then these 2 previous winners would have entered the outright winner calculations - but while O'Sullivan stays in, that big doubt remains. They should both negotiate their opening matches, but odds of 1/5-1/6 do not appeal.

who have we all got making the QFs?
Report wisewords April 24, 2018 5:36 PM BST
mine are:

Joe Perry v Kyren Wilson
Stuart Bingham v Judd Trump
Ding Junhui v Barry Hawkins
Mark Williams v Ronnie O'Sullivan
Report wisewords April 24, 2018 5:38 PM BST
with the final most likely being Kyren Wilson or Judd Trump against Ronnie O'Sullivan

It's a shame JV isn't in the box, for many reasons, but we could have enjoyed his inevitable - 'there's more to this game than just potting balls' any time J.Lisowski misses or messes up a safety shot!

And, why on earth would the BBC put S.Hendry and S.Davis in the box together?

Report thepunter April 24, 2018 10:06 PM BST
The break came at perfect time for him. If he comes firing tomorrow like he did today, Robbo will trail by 5 pretty quickly. Wouldnt be the first time he gets out early. And the fact ROS is waiting early on the road will not motivate him.
