Judd Trump cruises to World Open glory

There’s just no stopping Judd Trump after he added another a world ranking title to his 2019 collection with a convincing win against Thailand’s Thepchaiya Un-Nooh.

The world number one and reigning champion of the world cruised to a 10-5 win to claim the World Open title in China and the £150,000 top prize.

Despite a late rally from Un-Nooh from 8-2 down to 8-5, Trump was in control throughout in what was a rather one sided final..

And 2019 has been year of dominance for the Bristol Ace with this latest triumph being his fifth title of the calendar year following his victories at the Masters, the World Grand Prix, the International Championship and of course his first World Championship title at the Crucible in May.

Trump has now won 13 ranking titles, bringing him level with Ding Junhui on the all-time list, and just three behind both fellow world champions Mark Selby and Neil Robertson.

Despite his defeat, 34-year-old Un-Nooh, can take great heart from enjoying arguably his best week of snooker to date.

The £75,000 runner-up prize is the biggest of his career. He jumps 15 places to 22nd in the world rankings.
