Ding Junhui withdrew from the Shanghai Masters due to eye disease

Yesterday afternoon, the 2017 Snooker Shanghai Masters was about to start, but the defending champion Ding Junhui had not healed from viral conjunctivitis. He announced his retirement on Weibo. He wrote: “I withdrew from the Shanghai Masters, fans are sorry, See you at the British Championships.”

As early as before the Daqing National Championships, Ding Junhui suffered from viral conjunctivitis, his eyes were very red and swollen, so he had to wear sunglasses to attend the opening ceremony of the National Championships and the red carpet ceremony. In the subsequent qualifying round, although Ding Junhui defeated Chen Zhe 6-3 to advance into the race, he lost to Lions in the first round.

After the National Championships, Ding Junhui went on to play in the Championship Invitational. The intensive competition prevented him from taking a good rest. His eyes, which could have healed in about 10 days, still did not improve. He lost to veteran Hamilton in the first round of the championship and suffered a “round trip”. Ding Junhui was also very distressed by the successive defeats. Once the game was over, he updated his Weibo: “The ball is very fuzzy and I am helpless.”

As the defending champion, Ding Junhui did not want to gallop in the Shanghai Masters to defend his share of glory. However, frequent competitions are not conducive to the recovery of Ding Junhui’s eye disease, and holding on to the field with eye disease will not achieve satisfactory results for himself and the majority of fans. The experience of the Daqing National Championships and the Champions League Invitational has been explained. At this point, Ding Junhui had to reluctantly retire.

Withdraw from the Shanghai Masters and give up the Northern Ireland Open, so Ding Junhui has about half a month to prepare for the British Championships. He can just use this time to relax and treat eye diseases with peace of mind. I hope that Ding Junhui’s eyes will recover soon and show off his former glory. See you at the British Championships!
