THERE will be no representation from the host country in the quarter-finals of this year's Coral Welsh Open after Lee Walker lost 4-0 to Chinese teenager Zhou Yuelong tonight.

Walker had beaten Rhys Clark and former world champions Neil Robertson and Graeme Dott to set up a last-16 meeting with the 19-year-old.

But the youngster from Asia had too much for the Newbridge cueman at Cardiff's Motorpoint Arena, cruising to victory without dropping a frame to reach the quarters of a ranking event for the first time.

Walker, 41, was Wales' last hope of lifting the Ray Reardon Trophy, following defeats earlier in the day for Ebbw Vale prodigy Jackson Page, Michael White and Dominic Dale.

The Welshman struggled to gain a foothold from the start and lost to opening frame to a break of 75.

Yuelong then doubled his advantage and took a high-scoring third.

Victory, and a clash with Mark Davis or Scott Donaldson, was sealed with a 57 break in the fourth frame.

"I'm a bit disappointed," said Walker. "It's never nice to lose but I kind of feel I gave it to him. I didn't really put up any resistance."
