England Judd Trump [4] 10-7 England Ronnie O'Sullivan [2] Head to head Details 
Referee: Olivier Marteel

After many missed chances from both players in the opener Judd Trump finally took the frame to lead 1-0.

After Judd got in first in frame 2 he took a low percentage red up the rail but missed and Ronnie took advantage with a break of 90 to level the score at 1-1.

After a 41 minute 3rd frame (played 11 minutes on the pink ball which was near the pocket with a lot of reds close by) Ronnie took it with a top break of 27. Watch the strange frame on YouTube.

On a clearance to win the 4th frame Judd failed a basic positional shot to the yellow and after a safety exchange Ronnie got the chance and took the frame for a 3-1 lead at the interval.

An early mistake from Trump in the fifth frame lets O'Sullivan in and he takes advantage of it by making his first century of the tournament and going 4-1 up.

In frame 6 and 7 Trump went on the attack and in 22 minutes won both frames limiting Ronnie to just 23 points.

In Frame 8 Ronnie lost his composure and went for everything. Trump convincingly took the frame to level the score at 4-4.

Ronnie recovered well with a break of 89 to put go to 5-4 before the break.
