Wuxi Classic: Neil Robertson and John Higgins to meet in final

Neil Robertson

Neil Robertson comfortably beat Robert Milkins to earn a place in the final of the Wuxi Classic against John Higgins.

World number one Robertson, 31, took a 4-0 lead in the semi-final on the back of four half-century breaks before England's Milkins, 37, responded.

However, the Australian secured a 6-2 victory with a 92 break in frame eight.

Scottish four-time world champion Higgins, 38, beat Welshman Matthew Stevens, 35, by the same score to earn his place in Sunday's decider in China.

Robertson's win gave him revenge for his shock 10-8 defeat by Milkins in the first round of this year's World Championship.

"It's a fantastic achievement for me to reach back-to-back finals in China," said Robertson, who won the China Open in March.
