Don't understand why Murphy was televised over the Ding match. Looks a better match than the Murphy one.
I saw the Selby Jimmy game, Selby was on top form. Jimmy didn't really get much of a look in. He did get one or two chances and missed when in, but it was mostly him missing tricky long pots, then Selby getting a nice break.
They showed Ding's game on TV here in China (it seems the coverage here is unusually excellent for this tournament. We got the first two matches on the main TV sports channel, CCTV5 and Ding's evening match on the second channel, CCTV5+). It was a good match. Ding not at his best (but by no means playing poorly) and Georgiou playing quite well to really push him. Georgiou's safety really let him down, but his potting and break building were fairly impressive.
