Ronnie O'Sullivan showed a ruthless streak as he ended Stephen Hendry's hopes with a 5-2 victory. He polished off the world champion helped by breaks of 100, 91, 85 and 55. He said: "I've had a habit of getting too familiar with people in matches. This time I decided to hate Stephen until it was over."

Before yesterday's match, Cliff Thorburn had won only three of his fifteen matches against Steve Davis. He said: "I'm proud to have beaten the best player I've ever seen."

Defending champion James Wattana won the last three frames to beat Willie Thorne 5-4. In the eighth frame, he compiled a break of 101 and it was his 100th century of his professional career. Willie Thorne also made a century, a 112 in frame four, and it was his 98th since he turned professional in 1975.

On his way to the match, Peter Ebdon spent half an hour trapped in a lift at Bangkok's Imperial Queens Park Hotel. But he was freed in plenty of time before the match and rattled up breaks of 88, 57 and 53 to beat Ken Doherty 5-2.
