David McBeath has beaten India’s Manav Vikash Thakkar 4-3 in the Round of 64 at the WTT Feeder Westchester event to make him the last of three English athletes left in the tournament.
Paul Drinkhall went out to America’s Jishan Liang in a close 4-2 loss last night, and Tom Jarvis had to withdraw through injury against Japan’s Shunsuke Togami, who is ranked 48th in the world. Jarvis at least has the consolation of having moved up to No 102 in the world after reaching the final at the WTT Feeder Fremont last week.
McBeath is now set to play the Benedek Olah from Finland who ranked at 56 in the world is 339 places above the Englishmen. The match is scheduled to start at 20:15pm (UK time) this evening.
