Jack Lisowski – Tian Pengfei Match Prediction | 04-10-2019 14:00

In an astonishing finish to the match, O'Sullivan missed a simple final black off its spot which would have levelled the score at 44. Despite these results, he was not awarded a wild card by World Snooker to compete on the main tour. As a wild card, Tian defeated Ronnie O'Sullivan 53 in the last 32 of the 2010 China Open at the Students University Stadium in Beijing. He also recorded some impressive victories in the Wuxi Classic, by beating Mark Selby 53 and Joe Perry 51, before being whitewashed 60 by Ding Junhui.

Tian beat Ronnie O'Sullivan 42 to reach the quarter-finals of the Paul Hunter Classic, where he lost 43 to Judd Trump from 32 up.

The 2012/2013 season was a breakthrough year for Lisowski as he qualified for five ranking tournaments, including the World Championship, and reached his second final as a professional.[14] The first tournament he reached was the Australian Goldfields Open by beating Dave Harold and he lost 25 to Mark Davis in the first round in Bendigo.[14] He couldn't qualify for the next two events, but then defeated Chen Zhe and Joe Perry to feature in the UK Championship for the first time. In his match against Chen, Lisowski made the first 147 in competitive play of his career.[15] In the first round of the event in York, Lisowski lost 26 to Stuart Bingham.[16] Lisowski beat Ian Burns and Jamie Burnett to qualify for the China Open and then saw off Zhou Yuelong to advance to the last 32.

Tian lost 43 to Matthew Stevens in the second round of the Riga Masters after thrashing Allan Taylor 40. A string of qualifying defeats and first round exits followed until the Welsh Open in February 2017 where he overcame Chen Zhe 42, before losing 40 to Barry Hawkins in the second round.[33]Tian's deepest run of the year was at the China Open, where wins over Anthony McGill and Martin Gould took him into the last 16.

Lisowski progressed through to the last 16 of the Northern Ireland Open by defeating David Lilley 43, John Astley 41 and Joe Perry 43, but was thrashed 40 by Barry Hawkins.

Lisowski won a trio of matches for the second time this season to reach the Shanghai Masters where Ding Junhui eliminated him 51 in the opening round.[30] After Lisowski beat Chris Melling 61 at the UK Championship he said that he was hoping to rediscover his confidence after having a quiet start to the year. Lisowski won three matches to qualify for the Australian Goldfields Open, but lost 50 in an hour to Shaun Murphy in the first round.[29] He defeated Lu Chenwei 52 in the Wuxi Classic and was then knocked out 52 by Zhao Xintong.

My granddad was Ukrainian, although I'm regularly told that it's a Polish name. During an interview with Eurosport's commentator Przemek Kruk, Lisowski was asked about the origins of his surname, he replied: "Obviously living in England and having the surname 'Lisowski' makes me stand out as it's definitely not an English name. People often struggle to pronounce it and it's usually a good conversation starter.

After a series of early exits from main tour events, he reached the final of Event 3 of the Players Tour Championship, winning six matches including a 43 win over Mark Selby in the semi-final, where he came back from 13 down. In the final he lost 04 to Tom Ford.

Lisowski had a very good season in the Players Tour Championship series of tournaments in the 2011/2012 season. He reached the quarter-finals of Event 6 and Event 9 and went one better in Event 5, where he was knocked out in the last 4 against compatriot, and eventual winner, Andrew Higginson.

Tian could not qualify for the main draw of any of the ranking events during the season.[14] However, he had a very good season in the minor-ranking Players Tour Championship Events. At the second European Tour Event he won four matches which included a last 16 triumph over top 16 player Stuart Bingham to reach the quarter-finals, where he was whitewashed 04 by Neil Robertson.[14] Tian went one better at the sixth European Tour Event with wins over the likes of Jamie Burnett, Mark Davis and Martin Gould in the quarter-finals to advance to the semis.

He therefore entered the UK Championship in good form and looked to be progressing into the second round as he led Michael Leslie 40. Lisowski began the 2013/2014 season by qualifying for the 2013 Wuxi Classic where he whitewashed Tian Pengfei 50 in the first round, before being narrowly beaten 54 by Mark Williams in the second.[25][26] At the European Tour event, the Antwerp Open, Lisowski won five matches to advance to the semi-finals where he lost 42 to Mark Selby.
