Judd Trump’s participation in this week’s Northern Ireland Open appears to be in doubt after the airline he used to get home from China misplaced his cue.
The world number two recently used the cue to win 22 frames in a row in his run to the Shanghai Masters final before he lost 10-3 to Ronnie O’Sullivan on Saturday.
But when he returned to the UK he was stunned to discover he had come home without his cue. Trump has revealed today he is now a doubt for the Belfast event as he still doesn’t know how he can get his cue back.
Trump tweeted this morning “So my cue is with citybags who have no way of contacting them – missing Ireland at this rate.”
Trump is due to play Stuart Carrington in the first round of the Home Nations event on Tuesday at 1pm – meaning he faces a race against the clock to get his cue back.
If he doesn’t get his cue back it means he will miss the event or will be forced to play with a different cue in the meantime.
