Patrick Chifunda bt. Salvador Martinez (11-8, 5-11, 11-1, 11-9) [By Ryan Evans]
The match was high-energy all the way through, with both players really pushing forward. Chifunda controlled the tempo early on, but Martinez hung tight. They traded points throughout the first game, with Chifunda coming out on top after a couple of nicks. Martinez bounced back in the second game, using his incredible touch to even the match up. Chifunda returned with a vengeance in the third, pushing the pace and keeping Martinez on his heels. The fourth game was hotly contested, with a number of argued lets, but Chifunda again edged Martinez out to take the match 3-1.
