Snooker: Selt fightback stuns Bingham
Wednesday 11 July 2012
Matthew Selt caused a shock by knocking the holder, Stuart Bingham, out of the Australian Open with a 5-4 victory in the first round of the tournament.
Bingham had taken a 2-0 and 4-3 lead, but a battling performance from Selt, who is aiming to better last year's achievement of reaching the quarter-finals, resulted in him claiming the last two frames. The result capped a disappointing spell for Bingham, who lost in the Wuxi Classic final to Ricky Walden.
Neil Robertson, playing in his home event, eased past Nigel Bond 5-1, but the World Championship runner-up Ali Carter is also out after going down 5-3 to China's Cao Yupeng.
