Tom Ford – Ding Junhui

13:45-17:30

Welcome

Hello and welcome to Eurosport’s live coverage of semi-final day at the 2022 UK Championship.

‘Wondrous talent’ – Will spring-heeled Jack finally hit Jackpot at UK Championship?

Waiting to win a title in such a cut-throat era can take longer than ‘Steady’ Eddie Charlton sizing up a safety attempt back in the good old days, but these are the modern rules of engagement.

The learned Lisowski certainly knows the meaning of patience in his single-minded pursuit of happiness.
