Aussie in fi­nal

Sunday Territorian - - SPORT -

AUS­TRALIAN world No. 1 Neil Robert­son sur­vived a come­back from Eng­land’s Stu­art Bing­ham yes­ter­day to reach the fi­nal of snooker’s UKCham­pi­onship.

Robert­son, 31, led 8-3 at the Bar­bican Cen­tre in the north­ern English city of York, putting him within one frame of vic­tory, only for Bing­ham to launch a su­perb fight­back and level the match.

How­ever, Robert­son emerged vic­to­ri­ous from a tense fi­nal frame to com­plete a grip­ping 9-8 vic­tory.

He will face the win­ner of the se­cond semi-fi­nal be­tween de­fend­ing cham­pion Mark Selby and Ricky Walden.
