Welsh Open 2017: Neil Robertson knocked out by Lee Walker in second round
Lee Walker pulled off a shock in the Welsh Open second round as he came from 3-1 down to beat world number seven Neil Robertson 4-3.
Former world champion and 2016 finalist Robertson made 143 – the highest break of the tournament – on the way to a two-frame lead before Walker came back.
The Welshman, ranked 94, won the next three straight frames to seal victory.
Meanwhile, 15-year-old Welsh schoolboy Jackson Page reached the last 32 with a 4-3 win against John Astley.
It is the teenage amateur’s second win in the tournament after beating Jason Weston 3-1 in round one on Monday.
Page will now play the winner of the second round match between world number four Judd Trump and Alex Borg.
Elsewhere, Ross Muir thrashed Marco Fu 4-0 while Anthony Hamilton beat Jamie Cope 4-1 to set up a third-round tie against Craig Steadman, who defeated Sam Baird.
World Grand Prix finalist Ryan Day was knocked out by Thailand’s Thepchaiya Un-Nooh, who reached the third round of the tournament for the first time.
