*Neil Robertson* 5-3 Stephen Hendry
I missed the first frame but saw as from the 2nd.
Was a bit of a strange match,both were well of song,both missed numerous easy pots,the positional play was far from pretty and the safety was ok in patches.
Robbo was there for the taking,but on the other hand one could argue,that Robbos play might have been bogged down by Hendry.Because of that it,s hard to judge Robbos form at the mom,we,ll see how he does in the next few matches he plays,one things for sure,he,s certainly gonna have to step up a gear,2.
Hendry did actualy play pretty good in spells,it was the far too many missed eays pots and a good few crucial missed pots which let him down.The frame ball which he missed when on a 64 break was awful and Robbo did.nt half punish him when he then came to the table and made a 67 to snatch the frame.
Anyway,congrats to Robbo and to GJ!.
