THE LOWDOWN

NEIL ROBERTSON

  • Neil Robertson has coasted through the UK Championship so far with a 6-2 in the first and then a 6-3 in the second vs Thepchaiya Un-Nooh.
  • Robertson is in fine form this year with a 77% win ratio which saw him win the Riga Masters in July and make the final in China.

GRAEME DOTT

  • Graeme Dott has been unchallenged on his route through the tournament with two 6-2 victories over Oliver Lines and Matthew Stevens.
  • Dott has struggled for form this season with a 59% win ratio and his best performance was reaching the quarter-finals of the Riga Masters.

THE PREDICTION

Graeme Dott appears to have some traction on Neil Robertson, as he has beaten the former world champion seven times to Robertson's nine. Indeed, their only meeting this year resulted in a 5-2 Dott win in China, but Robertson should have the winning mentality to proceed in the competition.
