Aussies on fire!

For the second day running Neil Robertson dispatched his opponent without conceding a frame, this time it was Sam Craigie that had to sit and watch as the Aussie ran out a 6-0 winner.

He finds himself in the sort of form that won him the 2010 World Championships and with the crucible round the corner his game couldn’t be in better shape.

Luca Brecel was in no mood for a battle either with a 6-1 win over Alan McManus.

Brecel has already won a ranking event on Chinese soil but will have to be at his brilliant best in the semis when he faces Neil Robertson. 

It took all 11 frames to separate the Jack Lisowski Stuart Bingham match with the younger man eventually winning to progress to the semi final, it can only be a matter of time before Lisowski wins a ranking event and this could be the week.

Scott Donaldson proved again how good a match player he is with a 6-4 win over Ben Wollaston.

He progresses to the semi final to equal his best ever run in any professional tournament.
