Le Ber still in with a chance

MATT LE BER kept his hopes of a place in the knockout stage of the World Champion of Champions alive in Cyprus yesterday, winning two of his three matches, and is still breathing down the necks of the league leaders.

It was a shame that he lost last night to 2011 England champion David Bolt, but no disgrace, because the 33-year-old postman is one of the best singles players in the sport and is in fine form.

Earlier, the Vale Rec star, pictured, made short work of Israeli Yair Lieberthal and Botswana veteran Ray Mascarenhas, beating those two experienced opponents in straight sets.

Against Lieberthal, Le Ber was never in trouble and, although he lost the lead in the second set, he stamped his authority on the penultimate end with a treble that gave him an 8-5 cushion going into the last end to win, 12-6, 8-7.
