It can easily be said that Day had a difficult first opening round, 10-7 against JR Clark, as his highest break was hardly a 52, but producing a better performance in the second round, he managed a 10-2 victory over Alex Davies. The Welshman is still waiting for his first pro-trophy and his best WC performance was made in 2012 by reaching the quarter-finals.
Both Jak Jones wins at Ponds Forge surprised, as my expectations were to see him relegated at the end of this season, but now with wins against Mehta and Lisowski, in both matches producing 5 breaks over 50 points, little Jak is in front of his carrier performance as he battles a player not in a great form for a place at the Crucible, receiving in the same time the bonus of reaching top 64 and keeping his tour place.
Prediction: not an easy game for Day.
