Mark Selby crashes out on day one
    2018-04-24  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

MARK SELBY has vowed to return better than ever next year after a first-round defeat to Joe Perry at the Betfred World Snooker Championship.

A year ago the Leicester potter was the King of the Crucible, celebrating a third world crown, but this time he hardly had time to unpack following a 10-4 defeat on day one.

It brings the curtain down on a strange season for Selby, who has won two titles but too often been found wanting in the major tournaments.

And this was no exception, with Perry dominant from ball one of their match in Sheffield in a one-sided win Sunday.

“I have had a great run here. I can’t complain but I need a good rest now and will come back next year even better,” Selby said.

“Until you get your first round out of the way, you don’t feel like you are in the tournament so to go out before it has even started is disappointing.

“Performance-wise the season is not up to standard but then I have won two tournaments. Inconsistent is what I would say.”

By Selby’s high standards there will inevitably be a tinge of disappointment after a poor return in all three of the snooker’s triple crown events — with a last-64 loss at the U.K. Championship followed by a first-round defeat at The Masters.

However, there was little he could go against a rampant Perry, who moved 4-0 ahead early on and maintained that steady gap through to the end — despite a brief wobble when Selby could have closed to 8-5.
