Stephen Maguire edges past Judd Trump to set up clash against Shaun Murphy: 2012 German Masters
Snooker proceedings at the Tempodrom arena in Berlin, Germany, have stepped into the final stages of the tournament as top competitions are expected to be seen among the top guns of the snooker. The semi-final fixtures have been finalised after the cuemen
showed their class in their respective quarter-final matches at the 2012 German Masters.
Until the semi-finals, the 2012 German Masters featured some easy matches alongside some extremely thrilling ones, a couple of major upsets and some certain results. The semi-final line-up has been finalised with Scotland’s Stephen Maguire facing the former
World Snooker Champion, Shaun Murphy after winning a gripping quarter-final match against England’s Judd Trump by the score line of 5-4.
The Maguire-Trump quarter-final match was a tussling affair as both potters went neck and neck during the game to lead the contest into the decider frame where the Scotsman made a superb clearance to grab the match victory and book his penultimate stage
spot against Murphy.
Maggi underwent immense pressure from the start when the 2011 UK Championship winner nudged him 2-4 down at the interval after pocketing stunning breaks of 111, 91 and 53. The Bristolian was at the brink to hit the semi-final spot before the 30-year-old
bounced back into the game and with three consecutive frame wins, he dragged himself into the second last stage of the tournament.
“I should never have been 4-2 down in the first place, I gifted him three frames," said Maguire to the World Snooker after winning his match, “But that's easy to forget now. Judd's been on a roll and he fancied the job tonight, but he missed a few long balls
and he wasn't getting away with them this time.”
The Livewire added, “In the last frame I thought it was all over when he was in the balls but luckily for me I got a chance. The reds couldn't have been better placed and I felt great. Those are the times when you just have to clear up and show what you've
Maguire’s match against Murphy, who defeated World Number one Mark Selby in the quarters will be an excellent penultimate clash with the odds favouring the Magician.
