Trump beats Selby to reach Masters semi-finals

Trump has lost in three previous Masters semi-finalsJudd Trump knocked world number one Mark Selby out of the Masters at the quarter-final stage with a 6-2 victory.The match started slowly - with tactical battles meaning the opening two frames took more than an hour - but Trump found his groove to go 5-1 ahead.Selby rallied briefly with a 110 clearance, but Trump kept his cool to ease through to Saturday's semi-final.
Neil Robertson and Barry Hawkins meet in the evening session, with the winner facing Englishman Trump.Friday's heavyweight clash was one of contrasting styles between a gritty and mechanical Selby and the more free-flowing Trump.The opening two frames were long, drawn-out battles - lasting 43 and 26 minutes - which would ordinarily play into Selby's hands, but Trump kept him in check with excellent safety to pinch both.Selby pegged him back to 2-1, but Trump took control of the contest with breaks of 81, 101, and 60 and claimed victory in a prolonged 40-minute frame.inclusive guide.Sign up to My Sport to follow snooker news on the BBC app.
