    Could have had a lie in this morning!
    Was thinking exactly the same !

    Didn't see much of the second session, but at least some exciting safety duels. Seemed that Robertson's long potting was way off. Still have him as a candidate for the World Championship, though funnily enough I'd give him a slightly better chance had he not won here. It's actually hard for me to see him win a third ranking title this season with his lack in consistency.
    I think he said the new baby is due around the time of the Gibraltar Open, that could really motivate him. Or he could be tired out from lack of sleep, changing nappies etc.

    I agree he did deserve it, not a game I will be watching a replay of though.

    To lose a 7-3 lead and then win the match with a break like that was quite incredible.

    Yes he has said this.

    I imagine he's being compensated financially and might be in the 'who needs a trip to China' camp?

    I wish they wouldn't change camera angles as much as they do, as often as they do, so it would be easier to see things like that
