Chris Melling just missed out on the last-64 of the prestigious Matchroom US Open.

The Keighley potter started the tournament well, beating Bulgaria’s Kristian Dimitrov 9-4.

He backed that up defeating fellow Brit Chris Alexander 9-3 to move into round three.

But he suffered a setback in round three, losing 9-7 to Hungary’s Oliver Szolnoki.

That meant he had to win his next clash with Fitim Haradina to progress to the last-64, but the German beat him 9-7 too.
