Defending champion Selby into semi-finals at English Open

LONDON (XINHUA) – Mark Selby’s defence of his English Open title continued on Friday, as he beat China’s Zhou Yuelong 5-2 in the quarter-finals of this year’s tournament.

The 37-year-old English cueman will meet Neil Robertson in the semi-finals, after the Australian fired three centuries to defeat Robbie Williams 5-2.

Zhou, 22, started the match with a 2-1 lead but then conceded four frames in a row.

“I didn’t play great today but I’m happy to win,” Selby told the World Snooker Tour website.
