Stephen Hendry vs Matthew Selt Predictions


This will be a test of Matthew Selt's nerves. He enjoyed a run to the third round of the Welsh Open, playing some good snooker along the way.

  • Stephen Hendry hasn't played on tour since 2012.
  • Stephen Hendry and Matthew Selt have a 1-1 head to head record.
  • Matthew Selt reached the third round of the Welsh Open two weeks ago.

Stephen Hendry Form


Seven-time world champion Stephen Hendry makes his comeback, nine years after retiring from the professional game.

The 52-year-old hasn't played on tour since losing at the 2012 World Championship, and has been seen more often than not in the commentary box since.

Hendry has been competing in seniors events and reached the World Senior Championship semi-finals last year.

The Scot defeated Nigel Bond and Aaron Canavan before losing to Jimmy White in the final four.

Matthew Selt Form


Englishman Matthew Selt has an 8-9 win-loss record in 2021, which includes a run to the third round of the Welsh Open.

Selt was 6-7 for his 13 matches in the Championship League in January, before losing his opening game at the Snooker Shootout.

World number 36 Selt recorded 4-0 whitewash wins over Lukas Kleckers and Oliver Lines at the Welsh Open. He then lost 4-2 to Stephen Maguire.
