World Open 2011 in Rottedam

The World Open started today (Sunday 30th October) and Scotland’s Alan Clyne had a real tough 1st round match against David Palmer (twice previous World Open Champion). The game lasted an hour and a half and Harrow’s Alan Clyne was two games down before coming back to take it all the way to a fifth.

At 8-8 in the last game David Palmer said “….if I could stay reasonably close at the end, I had the shots and the experience to close it out. It’s always been my strength in my career, when it was getting close, to find the pace and the shots to finish the match off”.

Alan will be disappointed, but it was a great performance to take the 8th seed so close and I’m sure he’ll take a lot of positives from the match.

Scotland’s No.1 in the WISPA event – Lisa Aitken – won her 2nd round qualifier in 44 mins and 4 games to make it through to the last qualifying round. Congrats Lisa and good luck.
