Chinese sensation Ding Junhui was knocked out of the semifinals at the Hainan Snooker Classic, beaten by his compatriot Yu Delu 2-0 on Friday in Boao, a county of south China’s Hainan Province.
During his first match, the 24-year-old Ding was routed 2-0 by former world champion Graeme Dott of Scotland at the group round the day before. While against his compatriot, the fifth-ranked Ding still could not find his form.
Suffering two consecutive failures, Ding had no chance to play the semifinals. However, it did not upset him as he didn’t care much about the result. Speaking of the format of best of three, Ding said he was not unused to it, and it just depended on his state. He was not in the mood for play this time.
Ding thought highly of his compatriot Yu. "He always plays well, and he was the first one who scored 147 in the nationals matches," said Ding. "Actually he had the power to play in England, but he had no chance before."
