Quarter Final Round Up-EUROPEAN MASTERS

In form potters Judd Trump and Mark Selby will go head to head in the semi-finals of the European Masters in Romania. Both recorded superb 4-0 wins to set up a clash on Saturday afternoon, with first to six frames to go through to Sunday’s final to contest the 75,000 Euro top prize at the new world ranking event.

Trump whitewashed John Higgins to reach his first semi-final of the season. A 42 clearance gave the Bristol cueman the opening frame and a run of 74 made it 2-0. He won a scrappy third frame on the colours then finished emphatically with a break of 105 in the fourth.

World Champion Selby saw off Alfie Burden with top runs of 84, 136 and 102.

“I can’t play much better than that,” said the Leicester player. “The main thing was to win the game. Judd seems to be back to his best so I’m looking forward to playing him. It would be great to get to another final.”

Other big guns also cruise thorugh at the European Masters in Romania as Ronnie O’Sullivan and Neil Robertson set up a semi-final meeting. O’Sullivan scored a 4-1 win over Mark Davis to extend his best run since he won the Welsh open in February. Breaks of 33 and 54 gave him the opening frame then he nicked a scrappy second by clearing from last red to pink. Davis pulled one back with a run of 124, but O’Sullivan soon made it 3-1 then finished superbly with a 129, his first century of the season.

Robertson saw off Anthony McGill 4-2 in a grueling battle which lasted two hours and 51 minutes. Australia’s Robertson took the opening frame with a break of 61 before Scotland’s McGill levelled in a 44-minute second. A colours clearance in the third saw Robertson regain the lead then McGill made runs of 56 and 37 for 2-2. Robertosn potted brown, blue and pink to win the fifth, and took the next on the colours as well to boost his hopes of a second ranking title of the season having won the Riga Masters.
