Published Add your comment

Shaun Murphy is through to the quarter-finals of the Dafabet Masters, after beating Ding Junhui 6-4 at the Alexandra Palace.

The Magician had trailed 2-0 and 4-2, before winning the last four frames to advance.

He will now play Marco Fu in the last eight.

Ding came flying out of the block – quickly establishing a 2-0 lead with breaks of 99 and 84.

Murphy responded with runs of 71 and 64 to level at the mid-session interval.

Back came the world number three, who won three consecutive ranking events earlier this season, to regain his two-frame advantage knocking in a 70 along the way.

The world number eight halved the deficit with a 56, before making a frame-winning break of 46 to bring the contest all square once more at 4-4.

He then moved ahead for the first time, and gained 20 points out of his opponent through fouls in frame ten on his way to wrapping up victory.
