JOE PERRY'S dismal form continued when he suffered a 6-0 Wembley whitewash at the hands of Ryan Day in the Pokerstars.com Masters on Wednesday night.

The Chatteris cueman will have been glad to see the back of 2009, one of the worst periods of his 18-year snooker career, and hoping for a fresh start as he went into the second-round contest.

World No. 6 Day, from Wales, was making his fourth appearance at Wembley Arena and he had previously never been past the first round.

He said: "Joe was struggling and it's not easy when that happens in a big arena like this, you can get embarrassed.

"I kept him under pressure and put enough points on the board to win."

World No. 12 Perry, nicknamed The Gentleman, was far too generous to the Welshman and he failed to take the chances that came his way.
