Ding defeats Liang at World Snooker Championships

Source: Times Online

Ding Junhui recovered from 8-7 down to beat Liang Wenbo, his Chinese compatriot, 10-8 in the Betfred.com World Championship yesterday, watched by an estimated television audience of 100 million in China. Helped by breaks of 111, 91 and 63, Ding secured the win he needed to safeguard his place among the top 16 in the world rankings. With his confidence boosted, Ding will play 7-times World Champion Stephen Hendry in the last 16.

I was watching it this morning and Liang was on a roll. Ding couldn't make anything. He didn't make a ball for over an hour. But the 16th Frame was the key frame that turned the match back into Ding's favour.

Here it is.

A careless miss and he lost the match. The cute one is gone :(

Meanwhile Hong Kong's Marco Fu won easily and is into the 2nd round.
