Neil Robertson 4-3 Elliott Slessor
Neil played pretty terrible through this match. He went 3-1 down and then pressure started to get at his inexperienced opponent… Elliot should have won 4-1 but missed a fairly easy final green. Neil stole the frame. In the next Elliot had the perfect table and needed only a couple more balls to put Neil in the snookers required situation. He missed a straightforward blue. Neil gave him another chance and he missed a regular pink. At 3-3 his head was gone. The last frame was fragmented but Elliot never looked like he could be back in the match. To his credit, he fought for 3 snookers and got two of them … but it was too late and when Neil potted the last red it was truly over.

Quarter Finals

Judd Trump 4-3 Tian Pengfei
Judd came back from 3-2 down to beat Tian. Tian looked set to win 4-2: he was on a break and cruising in frame 6, but landed in the middle of the pack after an unlucky split. He had only one difficult red to play, cueing over the pack with the cue elevated as he was very close to the ball on. He did pot the red but the referee called a foul. Either Tian touched another ball with his cue, or it was a push shot … Anyway, Judd went on to win the frame and the match from there.
