Riga Masters: Wales' Ryan Day beats Scotland's Stephen Maguire for title

Ryan Day
Ryan Day has been beaten in four ranking tournament finals

Ryan Day held off Stephen Maguire's fight back in the Riga Masters final to win 5-2 and take his first ranking title and return to the world's top 16.

Welshman Day took a 4-0 lead over the Scotsman only for Maguire to reply by winning the next two frames.

But after four previous defeats in finals in his 18-year career, the 37-year-old edged a cagey last frame to take the trophy.

Day had beaten fellow Welshman Mark Williams 5-4 to make the final.

Maguire beat Ireland's Ken Doherty 5-4 in the semi-finals to earn his chance against Day.
