had it in February and we have it right now."
Judd Trump crashed out of the World Snooker Championship at the second-round stage in Sheffield on Monday after failing to claw back an overnight deficit against Ding Junhui. The former finalist resumed 10-6 behind and despite staging a valiant fightback to pull within two frames of his Chinese opponent, he had left too much to recover and fell to a 13-10 defeat.Ding, forced to qualify this year after falling out of the worlds top 16, looked set to cruise into the last eight after winning two of the first three frames to move within one of victory. But Trumps gradual recovery seemed to unsettle his opponent until a messy 23rd frame eventually fell the way of Ding to book the fourth last-eight place of his career.Afterwards Trump denied his social media activity had been a factor in his defeat, having sent a number of tweets during mid-session intervals earlier in the tournament including one taking issue with comments made by fellow professional and current television commentator Dominic Dale.Trump said: It worked when I was 7-6 down to (Liang) Wenbo - I came back and played really well and I didnt miss a ball.This time I lost because Ding was the better player - theres no other reason. I dont want to drain myself thinking about the game all day, every day.Responding specifically about his reaction to Dales comments about his perceived lack of cue ball control, Trump added: I just think its a little bit wrong of him to say that during a game.You dont chat about peoples techniques or stuff like that, you let them get on with it. But I would never win a game if I was thinking about stuff that is happening off the table, so me losing had nothing to do with that.Rising star Kyren Wilson also reached the quarter-finals after holding his nerve to see off Northern Irelands Mark Allen in the other match in the afternoon session. Trump was beaten 13-10 by Ding Wilson resumed with an 11-5 advantage but Allen raised hopes of completing a spectacular fightback as he took the first four frames of the session to move within two.But breaks of 51 and 71 secured a superb 13-9 victory for Wilson, the world No 19, who will now go through to face world No 1 Mark Selby in the quarter-finals.Afterwards Wilson, who began his meteoric rise by winning the Shanghai Masters as a lowly world number 54 last year, set his eyes on the bigger prize of emulating Shaun Murphys stunning title triumph in 2005.Wilson said: It was obviously a fantastic achievement the way Shaun blitzed everyone with his sensational potting, so hes proved that its possible and Id love to add myself to that list.That match took a lot of mental strength but I think it set me up nicely for the next round. Ive shown I can mix it, I can flow and I can battle. What ever my opponent throws at me Im capable of dealing with it.Wilson, who faces world number one Mark Selby in the last eight, added: Theres only eight players left in the tournament and any one of the eight can still win it. Im here to win it now and I was here to win it from the start. Kyren Wilson saw off Mark Allen to make the quarter-finals Nicolas Lombaerts Jersey .

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- The day race at Daytona International Speedway ended up at night. And now the night race will go off during the day. Steady rain forced NASCAR to postpone the Sprint Cup race at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday night. Its the second race at Daytona this year delayed by rain. The season-opening Daytona 500 was stopped for more than six hours because of rain and ended under the lights. "We seem to have a little bad luck with the weather," said Joie Chitwood III, the track president. "We had it in February and we have it right now." The Coke Zero 400 will start at 11 a.m. Sunday, about 14 hours after officials postponed the event. The forecast calls for more rain Sunday, but Chitwood said scheduling an early start gives NASCAR a "bigger window of time to get it in." The race was supposed to start at 7:577 p.ddddddddddddm. Saturday, but showers soaked the 2 1/2-mile superspeedway and forced officials to delay the green flag and eventually postpone the race. This is the fourth Cup race affected by rain this season and the second to be postponed a day. Bristol also was affected by rain, and Texas was delayed a day. Despite the latest washout, Chitwood does not want the race moved from its traditional Saturday night spot around the July Fourth holiday. The race has been run in that spot for 27 years, and prior to that, it went on the annual holiday itself. Chitwood was reminded of what a rain-free event looked like as he watched a replay of last years Coke Zero 400 during Saturdays delay. "The crowd was fantastic and the weather was good and we gave the fans a heck of a show," he said. "I think July Fourth weekend is a great time."
