Robertson takes Wuxi win in China
29 Jun 2014 18:06
Australia's Neil Robertson clinched a dramatic deciding frame to beat Joe Perry 10-9 and win the Wuxi Classic in China for the second consecutive year today.
-
Robertson, ranked number three in the world, had led the contest 8-6 but Perry fought back to claim three frames in a row, winning one on the black and one another with a break of 93.
-
Trailing 9-8, however, Robertson held his nerve and chalked up a break of 87 to force a decider.
-
Perry, playing only the second ranking tournament final of his career, was handed the chance to seal victory in the 19th frame but his break went off course and he sat down after scoring only 14.
-
Robertson made his opponent pay the full price for his generosity as he shot a composed break of 78 to secure the 10th ranking title of his career and the £85,000 prize.
-
The 32-year-old's triumph puts him level with Jimmy White at seventh on the all-time winners' list.
