Li H. - Fu M.
Marco Fu and Li Hang will play in the third round of the UK Championship. This will be the third match between these two players. In both previous matches, Fu was better.
Fu is slowly returning to his old shape after a short break due to health issues. Fu is one of the best players in this game, he needs one good result in a major tournament, and he should be expected to win at least this match. Hang is a player which can certainly be beaten in this moment, because Hang is not a top player, Fu is more experienced than he,Fu played more matches and tournaments like this, so we should expect the Hong Kong player to be under less pressured in this match.
Hang won 6-1 in the first round of this tournament, but already in the second round he had problems, against a much better player, he won in that second round 6: 4, now he will have an even harder task, so it won t be surprise if he loses six frames in this match.
Fu defeated one of the best players in the world in the second round of this tournament, Kyren Wilosn, lost Fu in that match 5: 3, won 6: 5, surely gained confidence after that win, and we should expect to play at a high level in this match.
