GUANGZHOU - India’s Pankaj Advani could not replicate his billiards performance in the snooker event as he lost 1-4 to Junhui Ding of China in the pre-quarterfinals at the Asian Games here Friday.
Advani, who won the gold in billiards singles, found it hard to compete with the top-seed Junhui and lost 11-100, 86-0, 1-84, 0-88, 7-88 in the men’s snooker singles.
The hopes of a snooker medal now lie on Aditya Mehta, who plays Yu-Lun Wu of Chinese Taipei in another round of 16 match later in the day.
India have so far won three cue sports medals at the Games.
