Joe Perry’s Australian Open dream is over after he let a 3-0 lead slip away against Mark Selby in the first round in Bendigo.

The Chatteris star was in excellent form as he took the first three frames and looked well on his way to another win in the fourth when leading 68-13, but Selby struck back and rattled off five frames in a row to triumph 5-3.
