White Withdraws from China Open

Bad news for Jimmy White fans as it has today been revealed that he has been forced to withdraw from this week’s China Open due to ‘visa problems’. As a result, local wildcard Tian Pengfei will receive a walkover and now meet Mark Selby at the last 32 stage on Wednesday evening.
