Robertson and Ding meet in the last four in Yushan (Imaginechina/Sipa USA)

Ding Junhui and Neil Robertson go head to head in a blockbuster World Open semi-final at the Yushan Sports Centre on Saturday.

Snooker’s two most successful overseas players lock horns for the right to play Judd Trump in Sunday’s final, after the reigning champion beat Jackson Page 6-2 earlier today.

The pair played out a thriller at the Shanghai Masters earlier this season, with Robertson recovering from 5-3 down to prevail in a deciding frame.

The Australian has now won each of the last four meetings between the players, while he was a 9-4 winner in the final of this event during it’s Grand Prix era in 2009.

A resurgent Robertson, who is eyeing his fourth triumph in the history of this tournament, is gearing up for his first ranking semi-final since the 2022 Scottish Open

The Thunder needs to win the tournament this week to preserve his top-16 status, and has looked back to his best with six centuries and victories over Tian Pengfei, Yuan Sijun, Chris Wakelin and Barry Hawkins along the way.

Ding has also been in wonderful scoring form, compiling eight tons on route to his third semi-final of the campaign.

The 2017 champion had already delighted his home crowd by beating Zak Surety, Liu Hongyu, Cao Yupeng and Shaun Murphy this week, before whitewashing Hossein Vafaei 5-0 in the quarter-finals.

Despite his poor recent record against Robertson, the Dragon does have a positive omen to draw on. Indeed, outside the Premier League and Championship League, he has won all five tournaments in which he has beaten the Australian – including the 2014 China Open and 2005 UK Championship.

The winner of this mouth-watering match will set up a showdown with Trump in Sunday’s showpiece.

Play gets under way at 11.30am GMT on Saturday and will be contested over the best of 11 frames at the Yushan Sports Centre.
