Wattana Faces Davis

n SHEFFIELD, Englan-- Thailand's James Wattana has booked a quarterfinal clash with six-times title holder Steve Davis in the world snooker championship. Wattana went to the last eight when he overturned a 6-2 overnight deficit to beat England's Brian Morgan 13-9 in the second round on Monday. "Brian never gave up and surprised me with his style of play," said Wattana, who is attempting to become only the second overseas player since Canada's Cliff Thorburn in 1980 to capture the championship.
