Higgins proves too strong for Clacton snooker pro Alex
CLACTON professional Alex Davies was unable to halt the progress of former world champion John Higgins, at snooker’s Haikou World Open.
The 26-year-old lost 5-1 in today’s first-round contest in Haikou, on Hainan Island.
Davies fell behind but made it 1-1, after winning the second frame 65-39.
However, Higgins proved too strong thereafter and made one break of 122.
Colchester-born Ali Carter plays his first-round match tomorrow, against Dave Gilbert.
The Haikou World Open is this season’s ninth ranking event and runs until Sunday.
