In the opening round a day earlier, Mehta had beaten Sam Baird of England 5-3.
Yesterday, against a tough opponent, Mehta began well, winning back to back frames. He, in fact, posted a break of 95 in the second frame to assert his dominance. The Chembur lad next takes on veteran, Jimmy White of England, popularly known as the people’s champion, in a third round encounter today.
“It was a good match and I’m glad to make it through Round 2. My next match is going to be a challenge as I’ve played Jimmy twice before and lost on both occasions. But I’m looking to change that in the third round here,” said a confident Mehta.
