The world’s top two players face a mountain to climb if they are to progress further in this year’s World Championship.
Both reigning world champion Judd Trump and world number 2 Neil Robertson will have to comeback from behind if they are to reach the semi-finals of snooker’s famous competition starting tomorrow (Wednesday).
Trump, who has struggled in each round of the competition so far, is 10-6 behind against world number 8 Kyren Wilson – meaning his hopes of defending the World Championship crown currently are in jeopardy.
And Australian Neil Robertson had a day to forget against three-times world champion Mark Selby trailing 11-5 ahead of the pair’s final session this morning.
The first day of the World Championship also saw big surprises with five-times world champion Ronnie O’Sullivan 6-2 behind against an impressive Mark Williams, who won the famous trophy two years ago.
And Kurt Maflin – one of the stars of this year’s Championship for his shock wins over David Gilbert and John Higgins – had a nightmare session against Anthony McGill trailing 7-1 and left with it all to do.
