ABSTRACT
NEIL ROBERTSON warmed up for the World Championship by claiming his first ranking title in over two years after beating Mark Selby in the final of the China Open. Robertson had not triumphed at a ranking event since winning the World Open in September 2010, but gave himself the perfect chance to end that drought by taking a 6-1 interval lead in a drawn-out first session. Reigning UK and Masters champion Selby cut the deficit to two frames, but Robertson (above) pulled clear to seal a 10-6 victory and enter the World Championship, which gets under way at the Crucible next month, as the man to beat.
