Injured Trump Suffers Shock Defeat

PRE-TOURNAMENT favourite Judd Trump was hampered by a shoulder injury in his non-cueing arm and appeared in considerable discomfort as he suffered a 10-8 defeat to Rory McLeod in the first round of the Betfred World Championship.

Trump also faces a fine from the game’s governing body for failing to fulfil his media commitments after the match.

Meanwhile, Ali Carter blamed a poor first session for his 10-7 defeat to 2006 champion Graeme Dott. Welsh interest in the tournament ended as the country’s sole representative in this year’s tournament, Ryan Day, suffered a 10-4 defeat to Xiao Guodong.
