Roy The Boy thinks Matthew Stevens will beat Matthew Selt in the World Open on Tuesday morning in China.
Stevens can prove too strong for Selt in World Open
A resurgent Matthew Stevens is expected to beat Matthew Selt tomorrow morning in the World Open in China.
Stevens, who has had to come through a wild-card round to make it into the competition proper, is currently ranked 46. It’s a far cry from his two runner-up spots in the World Championship during the mid-noughties. Indeed a lot of water has gone under the bridge, in his case a divorce and bankruptcy.
Tomorrow’s rival, Matthew Selt, is ranked 20 places higher than the Welshman but the books can barely split them generally going 10/11 and 11/10.
With personal problems seemingly behind him Stevens has been playing some great stuff recently, having a deep run in the Riga Masters (helped by a few walkovers) and, more recently, in the Indian Masters where he took Stuart Bingham to a deciding frame in the last-32 stage.
