UK Championship semi-finals live – Ding Junhui v Tom Ford first before Jack Lisowski faces Mark Allen
Tom Ford – Ding Junhui
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?
Good things come to those who wait. And wait. And wait. And wait..
It would not be fraternising with hyperbole to suggest Jack Lisowski’s ongoing stay in the tortuous waiting rooms of professional snooker has been one of the great oddities in a sport historically defined by time and chance.
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.
