Neil Robertson should end Bingham's title tilt

Talented Aussie has been upping his game

Neil Robertson is producing better with the Crucible a fortnight away

Quarter-finals
Eurosport 1, 7am & 12.30pm Friday

Neil Robertson has been showing positive vibes in recent weeks and the Australian could be playing well enough to deny Stuart Bingham in their China Open quarter-final.

It's not a clash for heavy stakes because both players will still be fine-tuning their games with the Crucible just over a fortnight away, but of the pair Robertson is definitely good enough to win a second world title.

Of course, that's reflected in their prices to progress to the semi-finals in Beijing, but Bingham has had the disadvantage of missing six months this season due to a betting ban.

Prior to defeating Graeme Dott in the last 16, Bingham only just edged out Matthew Stevens and Ricky Walden in final-frame deciders. Robertson had to work hard to pip Sam Craigie 6-5, but the Melbourne native stepped things up to thrash Zhou Yuelong 6-1 to earn a last-eight berth.

Jack Lisowski plays Kyren Wilson, who ousted Ding Junhui 6-5, for a last-four spot but it's difficult to be confident about which way that one will go.
