Ronnie O'Sullivan has booked his place in the semi-finals of the Welsh Open.

O'Sullivan eased past world number four Mark Selby with a 5-1 win to book a last-four tie against England's Kyren Wilson who defeated defending champion Neil Robertson 5-0.

Shaun Murphy defeated Judd Trump 5-3 and will face Yan Bingtao, who beat five-time Welsh Open champion John Higgins 5-2.

It was straightforward for O'Sullivan, who resisted a potential late comeback from fellow Englishman Selby with the help of two fouls in the final frame.

O'Sullivan is looking to win a fifth Welsh Open title in Cardiff.
