Masterful Ding seals quarterfinal spot
    2018-05-02  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

CHINESE snooker superstar Ding Junhui cruised into the quarterfinals of the World Championship on Monday securing the one frame he required to thrash Anthony McGill 13-4 in their second round clash.

The 31-year-old, the losing finalist in 2016, is the new favorite after five-time champion Ronnie O’Sullivan and defending champion Mark Selby went out.

Ding showed little sign of the favorite’s tag handicapping him as he wasted little time in securing the one frame he needed in Monday’s third and final session against his 27-year-old Scottish opponent.

“I was focused and relaxed and took every chance to make breaks,” said Ding.

“I feel good and I am playing well.”

Ding — bidding to become the first Asian to be crowned champion — will play Englishman Barry Hawkins in the last eight.

Hawkins beat Ding on his way to a surprise appearance in the 2013 world final where he lost to O’Sullivan. The 39-year-old has since shown that was no fluke by reaching the last four on three occasions.
