Ding wins all-Chinese battle

Ding Junhui will meet Stephen Hendry in the second round of the World Championship after defeating his compatriot Liang Wenbo in a Crucible thriller on Tuesday.
Leading 5-4 overnight, Ding took the first two frames of the day to go 7-4 ahead. But Liang rallied to move into a 8-7 lead. Just when it looked like Ding's confidence was evaporating, he produced a clearance of 111 to level things up.
And after both players missed opportunities to seize the 18th, Ding finally pulled through to clinch the match 10-8.
