The 2020 WSF Open in Malta has reached the knockout stage, with several WSS players doing well and still competing after the group stage was completed yesterday.
In the last 64 …
Nickolas Neale will play 14 years old Iulian Boiko from Ukraine
Stuart Watson will play the winner of Jeremy Lee v Jenson Kendrick
Wayne Townsend will play 20 years old Brian Ochoiski from France
Tony Drago and Rory McLeod will face each other. Tony won all three of his group matches. It’s great to have him back playing well. Remember, he missed the inaugural WSF event in Malta in 2018, as he was then critically ill.
Leo Fernandez was very unlucky. He didn’t come in Malta in the best possible shape having suffered a hand injury a couple of weeks ago, and to make things worse, his luggage, including his cue arrived only when the group stages were already well unerway. As a result, he managed to win only one match, which wasn’t enough.
Stuart Watson and Rory McLeod reached the last 16
