China Open 2010: Wildcards Revised

Following on from my previous post announcing the wildcards for the upcoming China Open, I have recently been informed by reader ddrIII that there have been a couple of late changes to the schedule…

The revised schedule for day one of the event is as follows:


WC1 – Rod Lawler v Supoj Saenla
WC2 – Robert Milkins v Lu Chenwei
WC3 – Andrew Higginson v Li Yan
WC4 – Mark Davis v Tian Pengfei


WC5 – James Wattana v Au Chi Wai
WC6 – Tony Drago v Shi Shuamgyang
WC7 – Rory McLeod v Liu Chuang
WC8 – Bjorn Haneveer v Yu Delu

The first change to the previously announced schedule is that James Wattana’s wildcard opponent Manan Chandra has been replaced by the man who finished third in the 2009 Asian Championship, Au Chi Wai.

Secondly, Rory McLeod will now face the man who gave Ronnie O’Sullivan something of a scare at the 2008 World Championship, Liu Chuang and not Tang Jun as initially announced.
