        They basically just refused to look at each other, Williams walked in, shook the hosts hand, blanked Morgan, the host asked a few times about "the elephant in the room" regarding Williams comments and Williams basically refused to say much about them.

        I actually thought it was just a windup when i first read about it but it seems they genuinely don't like each other.

              I'm sure he has done it a fair bit on Eurosport, and didn't play too well after from memory.

                The Welsh Open is covered by BBC Wales and has different contracts than BBC main group.
                Hence different channels of broadcast and less advertisement across the group's channels.

                  Dominic Dale isn't a fan of Stevens new stick, too heavy and too stiff, says it feels dead.

                      Well, Murphy whitewashed, never expected that. Should have put a few quid on that GG.

                        What does the W/O mean between ROS and R Hull? I think somewhere said “walked over”. Still not sure what that means?
                        Did you put my "1" up ?

                          Just looked at the 1 year rankings list....Matthew Stevens in the 60s. I can see him retiring soon sadly. Michael Holt is another who has dropped down.

                          I believe Hull pulled out, so it was a walkover for ROS.

                            Where you watching the TV feed or the sport website that shows the game without changing to scheduled TV?
                            And it was quite obvious that he hit the red as the white ball changed direction, so Judd was very right to take up the discussion.

                              Robin has pulled out sick.
                              W/O means walk over to the player in attendance and they can "walk over" to the next round

                                Judd told the referee that he had hit the red - the referee maybe should have said he did not see it, and he would watch the replay (which he eventually did) and make a final judgement

                                But to keep arguing with the player until Judd's insistence makes him watch the replay is poor - upsetting for the player and makes the ref look silly.

                                I'm sure Jan Verhaas, Brendon More et al would have handled it differently

                                I know the rules do not explicitly state that a player has any recourse, and surely we do not need Tennis style challenges (lol), but as a gentleman/ladies' game we expect our referees to be professional and courteous, and our players to be honest
                                If he had kept his eyes on the white ball, he wouldn´t have been in doubt because it changed direction (if only just slight).
