Selby in Crucible injury concern
World number one Mark Selby has withdrawn from the China Open with a neck injury, sending Ding Junhui through to the last eight.
The 'Jester from Leicester' had been due to play Ding in the last 16 but is returning from Beijing to England for treatment. "I struggled through my first-round match and I don't want to do any more damage, especially with the World Championship coming up," he said. Ronnie O'Sullivan crushed Mark Williams 5-1 in their second-round match as he continues to delight his fans in China. Williams, who has not beaten O'Sullivan for 10 years, missed an opportunity to level the tie at 2-2 and went on to lose 5-1. The Rocket, who now leads their head-to-head meetings 23-7, will meet the Welshman again in the second round of the World Championship if both players win their first-round matches. Defending champion Judd Trump beat Stuart Bingham 5-3, taking three frames on the trot to book his place in the quarter-finals. He will face Stephen Lee after the Trowbridge potter continued his good run of form with a 5-3 victory against Scotland's Graeme Dott.
