Robertson, who also reached the final of last week’s German Masters, moves to sixth on the all-time winners list with 18 trophies at this level.

It has been a remarkable run of form for the Melbourne man, who is now in prime position in both the European Series order of merit and the Coral Series rankings to earn respective bonuses of £150,000 and £100,000.

Robertson has risen back to number two in the world rankings behind Judd Trump, and it is fair to say that they are dominating the circuit between them this term.
