Mark Selby withdraws from Manchester and China

Filed under: snookerbacker @ 7:08 pm

News filtering through today that World Number 1 Mark Selby has pulled out of next week’s Ladbrokes Players Championship in Manchester as well as the China Open later this month for personal reasons.

Sometimes things are more important than a game of snooker and while I think Mark will not have taken this decision lightly, it’s obviously the right one for him so we all wish him well. After all, he’s pretty much one of the hardest working professionals out there and can’t be faulted for his commitment to the sport.

Let’s just hope that whatever it is he is facing off the baize is a distant memory this time next month when we hope to see him in fine fettle at The Crucible.
