Minehead (dpa) – Two months after Gabriel Clemens’ sensational run at the World Cup, compatriot Martin Schindler is also facing a major upheaval at an important Grand Slam.

“The Wall,” as Schindler calls him, was a surprise quarter-finalist at the UK Open in Minehead, England, and was tied there on Sunday (1.45pm/Sport1 and DAZN) with Andrew Gelding, a possible opponent. On Saturday, Schindler stunned with victories over former world champion from England Adrian Lewis (10:5) and former Premier League champion Johnny Clayton from Wales (10:8).

The special feature of the UK Open is that there is no preliminary list and each round is drawn anew and without restrictions. World Cup semi-finalist Clemens is still struggling in 2023. After his opening defeat at the Masters, Saarlander lost his first match at the next major, this time with 5:10 against Belgium’s Dimitri van den Berg. Despite reaching the semi-finals of the World Cup, Clemens was not offered a replacement card to the prestigious and well-paid Premier League.
