Xinhua News Agency, London, October 18 (Reporter Zhang Wei) World No. 1 England player Trump beat Australian star Robertson 9:8 on the 18th and won the Snooker England Open.
In the final with 9 wins in 17 rounds that day, Trump was chased by his opponent for 3 consecutive rounds after a 3-1 start. After winning the eighth round, he lost 3 consecutive rounds and was passive at 4:7. However, this week is not in the best state of the world's first critical moment in the four consecutive cities, returning to the lead with 8:7. Robertson relied on 125 points in a single stroke to drag the game into the final game, but Trump returned with 114 points in a single stroke to win the championship.
This is Trump's 18th ranked championship in his career. As a result, the 31-year-old has the same number of ranking champions as Selby, 37, and Robertson, 38. Of course, there is still a long way to go before the "Rocket" O'Sullivan set a record of 37 by winning the World Championships this year.
Trump, who won six ranking championships last season, said frankly that it would be too difficult to win another six championships this season. "But if I can maintain a good performance, I may be close to this number."
China's top player Ding Junhui failed to make it to the quarter-finals after losing to Scottish veteran Higgins. Zhou Yuelong, the only Chinese player who advanced to the quarterfinals, stopped because of a loss to Selby. Selby lost to Robertson in the semifinals.
