Wilson took first 1st frame comfortable, Ryan Day then switched on his confidence and with only a slight wobble in the 4th frame always looked to be in control Frame 2 went to Day with a break of 98. Safeties, Foul balls and slow tactical play ensued in Frame 3. A strong red in the middle pocket set Day up to take command of the frame and win with a century of 107.
In a frame that Day should have closed out on several chances, Frame 4 proved tough for Day. With a commanding performance during the frame a lapse of concentration and show of nerves at 48-0 allowed Wilson back on the table. He failed to capitalise on the chance and Day recomposed and settled the nerves to take the frame.
3-1 to Day at best of 7 frames, Day couldn’t relax as surely the ¼ final of the German Masters ran through his head. Day this time remained confident and composed and with a break of 91 he booked himself into the Last 16 where he’ll face Mike Dunn racked 40 in the world. Day ranked 20 should be confident going to the next 16 based on his performance tonight.
