Walden beats in-form Ding
- From the section Snooker
Ding Junhui misses a routine pink to hand victory to Ricky Walden at the UK Championship and bring an end to his hopes of a fourth consecutive ranking title.
World number three Ding arrived in York having won the Shanghai Masters, Indian Open and the International Championship in China and was trying to become the first player since Stephen Hendry in 1990 to win four ranking titles in a row.
Walden goes on to face Mark Allen in the last eight after the Northern Irishman edged past Judd Trump 6-4.
