Snooker: Reanne Evans crashes out in China
Tuesday 18 June 2013
Reanne Evans, the first female qualifier for the main stages of a ranking event, crashed out of the Wuxi Classic yesterday.
The nine-time world ladies champion from Dudley was beaten 5-2 by China's Zhu Yinghui in the wild-card round, denying her a first-round match with the world No 1, Neil Robertson.
Evans lost the first frame despite being first in with 35, and fell 3-0 down before getting on the board with the highest break of the match, 79, in the fourth.
She closed to within one frame but could make no further inroads as Zhu clinically closed out the match. "It took me a while to get into the match because of my lack of experience in these conditions," Evans said. "This will stand me in good stead for the future."
