Rising Star Ishpreet Singh Chadha’s Triumph and Notable Wins at Cazoo British Open

Ishpreet Singh Chadha from India achieved a significant victory, defeating 2015 World Champion Stuart Bingham with a score of 4-2 at the Cazoo British Open in Cheltenham.

Singh Chadha is currently in his debut season on the World Snooker Tour, having successfully navigated through the Asia-Oceania Q School earlier this year. He has made an impressive start, notably defeating Anthony McGill to secure a spot in the upcoming Wuhan Open. The Mumbai cueman also had a close match against World Champion Luca Brecel at the recent European Masters, ultimately losing 5-3.

Tied at 2-2, Singh Chadha secured his brilliant win with breaks of 69 and 71. His reward is a last 32 match against former Crucible semi-finalist David Gilbert.

The 27-year-old Singh Chadha stated, “I watched the entire 2015 World Championship and greatly admired Stuart Bingham for his remarkable composure. I have immense respect for him as a fantastic player. Beating a World Champion brings me great joy.”

“I approach each match as if I were playing in India. This mindset has been very beneficial, especially in this match. I was extremely confident going into it, with a different positive mindset, which proved to be a great help.”

“I am taking gradual steps, aiming to leave a mark on the tour. I commit my all to every match, and opponents should be wary.”

Kyren Wilson achieved a significant milestone in his career, reaching his 400th century on the way to an impressive 4-0 victory against world number three Mark Allen. Wilson crafted breaks of 112 and 121 during his victory. His next challenge awaits against Barry Hawkins in the last 32.

For Allen, this defeat dashed his hopes of surpassing Ronnie O’Sullivan as world number one. Allen needed to win the event to clinch the top spot, leaving Ronnie O’Sullivan at the summit for the time being.

Robbie Williams secured a surprising 4-1 win over the four-time World Champion John Higgins, earning a spot in the last 32.

This victory marks his second win against Higgins, the first being a 5-4 victory at the 2020 German Masters. Williams showcased impressive runs of 73, 91, 52, and 118 during today’s tie. He will now face Scott Donaldson.

Williams expressed, “John is an exceptionally skilled player, undeniably one of the greatest of all time. To remain undefeated against him is an achievement worth celebrating. I dedicated more effort during the off-season, and I feel sharper as a result. I am optimistic about making a significant impact this season. I believe I have the confidence to win a tournament, and that is a fantastic mindset to possess.”

In the evening session, the last 32 matches commenced. Welsh three-time World Champion Mark Williams secured a 4-2 win over Gary Wilson in a repeat of the 2021 final. This sets up an exciting showdown with China’s Ding Junhui in the next round.

Ding Junhui progressed with an impressive 4-0 whitewash victory against Belgium’s Julien Leclercq, while Ali Carter emerged victorious with a 4-2 win over defending champion Ryan Day in a late-night battle.
