Mehta leads country’s hopes in Indian Open

Mumbai, Mar 9:
Aditya Mehta would lead the host nation’s challenge in the second Indian Open Snooker Championship, starting tomorrow, as four top-10 players in the world, including defending champion Ding Junhui of China, will vie for top honours.
Mumbai-born Mehta, ranked 50th in the professional circuit, is seeded a lowly 40th in the pound sterling 300,000 tournament and is the lone Indian who has already booked a spot in the 64-player main draw.
29-year-old Mehta, runner-up in the inaugural edition of the tournament held in October, 2013 in Delhi, blanked Hammad Miah of England 4-0 in Barnsley Metrodome in the UK to secure his place in the main draw.
Mehta is up against higher-ranked English pro Mark King – the world no. 33 – in his first round on March 11.(PTI)
