BARRY HAWKINS VS NEIL ROBERTSON PREDICTION

These two have had a closely-fought rivalry over the years with Robertson leading 13-10 in terms of wins. Indeed, they have met once before in Sheffield and that saw Hawkins win a superb match 13-12 back in 2015 so this could easily go either way. It is difficult to pick a winner here, as Hawkins is one of the most reliable Crucible performers around while Robertson is a match for any player on his day. The Australian played to a higher level in the first round and knocked in a couple of centuries while Hawkins barely had to get out of second gear in his 10-2 win over Alexander Ursenbacher. For that reason, we are tipping The Thunder from Down Under to progress in a match which seems destined to go over 20 frames.
