Matthew Selt claimed another scalp in the Australian Goldfields Open with victory over seven-time world champion Stephen Hendry. World No 43 Selt, who came through qualifying, beat John Higgins on Tuesday and saw off Hendry 5-1 yesterday in the last 16.

"There was a bit of pressure for me to win as I was playing Stephen Hendry and he's the greatest winner of all time. He's like a machine," Selt said. "After beating John, I felt amazing but I was brought down to earth with that performance. I didn't feel like I did yesterday and Stephen did not play well at all."
