Tour teenager Scott Donaldson almost came unstuck in at the Welsh Open after failing to truly grasp the meaning of his match against Rob Milkins starting ‘not before 2pm’. The Perth professional had actually booked a flight home for around 8pm on the Wednesday evening, not expecting to progress. But having had to wait until mid-afternoon to get on table, meaning he would have missed his flight anyway even if he had lost, the world No77 pulled off an excellent shock win over Milkins, ranked 65 places higher. Donaldson spent another night in Newport before being offered a lift by compatriot and Good Samaritan John Higgins back to Scotland on Thursday following the four-time world champion’s 4-0 victory over Tony Drago – both then returning ahead of last-64 stage games at the start of the second week.
