Snooker star Judd Trump happy to be back playing in China
JUDD Trump returns to one of his favourite hunting grounds this week – China.
Bristol potter Trump burst on to the professional scene two years ago by winning the China Open title.
And the new world No 1 hasn't looked back since with two more ranking titles to his name and a string of minor crowns as well.
But the 22-year-old especially likes playing in the Far East and was desperately unlucky not to win the Shanghai Masters crown earlier this season.

However, Trump did win the inaugural International Championship in China earlier this season and is gunning for his third title in China at this week's Haikou World Open, which starts today.
"I do enjoy playing in China, the Chinese love their snooker," said Trump. "You always play in front of a big crowd, which is what I like.
"A lot of the time they're (the spectators) are moving about and taking photos, which can be a bit distracting, but it doesn't bother me too much.
"We've got a lot of tournaments in China now, so we've got to get used to playing there."
Trump, who has replaced Mark Selby at the top of the world rankings following his run to the Welsh Open semi-finals earlier this month, opens his account tomorrow against Walsall's Mark Joyce or a qualifier.
