Ding Downs Brave McGill For ET5 Title

Congratulations to Ding Junhui, who tonight ended the run of home hope Anthony McGill with a 4-2 victory to capture the Scottish Open event in Ravenscraig. Earning 2,000 ranking points and the top prize of €12,000, Ding moves himself up to 10th place in the latest projected seedings, as well as climbing up to 6th place in the latest PTC Order of Merit.

Every credit though must go to runner-up McGill, who not only recovered from 3-0 and 51 points down in his quarter-final to defeat Thanawat Tirapongpaiboon, but then recovered from having needed two snookers, to defeat Andrew Higginson in the semi-finals. He fought hard in the final and produced some terrific pots, but couldn’t quite keep the cueball under tight control and take his chances.

Next stop – Sheffield on Tuesday for the final snooker of 2012, the qualifiers for the Haikou World Open from the EIS…
