Robertson on roll at snooker world champs

·1-min read

Australian snooker star Neil Robertson says he's riding momentum gained from winning the Tour Championship last month as he prepares for a quarter-final at the World Championship.

Roberston beat England's Jack Lisowski 13-9 in the second round in Sheffield, England on Saturday, producing breaks of 126, 87 and 70 after leading 9-7 overnight.

The 39-year-old Robertson has only reached the semi-finals once since winning his only world title in 2010 - but he has looked in good form in Sheffield this year.

"The tour championship was certainly the best I've ever performed in an event, certainly from start to finish," he said.

"I've kept that momentum going into the first two rounds here, but the form and results don't really matter - it's all about what I do in my next match.

"I've got to forget about playing well or anything and just prepare as well as I have done."
