I unfortunatley did,nt see the whole of the last session,but i,ll catch up with it on youtube over the next few days.
He did,nt half step up when it really counted,finished off the match in style.
It won,t be much of a consolation,but congrats to Ding on gettin as far as the final.
He really lost it already after the first session,losing the first 6 frames was a maaaaassive body blow,he recovered extremly well and managed to reduce the deficit to only 1 at one point,only to have to take another good few blows which lead to a 14-18 loss in the end.
Oh,i amost forgot,he did,nt manage to beat Hendrys century record.
Before the final,i was very nervous that he would either equal or beat it,as he was on 12,but luckily he <only> managed to knock in 3 more,funnily enough,all of them being exactly *103*.
His crackin barrage of centurys now puts him in second place on the all time list.

I'm curious, how many of Ding's tons came in qualifying rounds?
Pretty sure Hendry didn't play qualifiers when he set his 16 record but I could be mistaken.
