Robertson eyes UK Championship

Neil Robertson is determined to make an impact at the UK Championship which gets underway in York next weekend.

The Australian won the World Championship in 2010 but then suffered a dip in form which saw him drop down the rankings.

However, he now believes he is back at his best and is confident of making a big impact at the Barbican Centre. Those following the latest snooker betting odds should remember this.

"My form is looking good with the UK Championship and the Masters coming up," the 29-year-old said. "I've practised harder than ever this season and I am very solid.
"Last season I was crashing out in the first or second round of most of the PTC events so it's great to have won a couple of tournaments."

His performances on the baize have backed up this assessment and in October he claimed his second Players Tour Championship title of the season, making him only the second man to achieve this feat with Ronnie O'Sullivan being the other.

Robertson's first PTC success this season saw him beat Ricky Walden in Warsaw, but it was the second victory that was arguably more impressive when he overcame rising star Judd Trump in the final of the Alex Higgins International Trophy.

After securing the world title last year, the Australian then filed to get past the second round of the next three ranking event.

However, he is still ranked fourth in the world and with this in mind there is every reason to expect he will pose a serious threat in York.
