Gary Anderson is the next player through to the Quarter-Finals at the UK Open in Minehead. He defeated Jermaine Wattimena putting in the best performance of the tournament in the process.

This for Anderson will send out a message to the remaining chasing pack who will see him as a big favourite to lift the title come tomorrow.

He defeated Wattimena 10-6 with a 104.7 average. It was a polished performance from ‘The Flying Scotsman’ who also hit nine 180’s to defy a 97 average from the rapid Dutchman.

It helped Anderson though playing a player of Wattimena’s pace so it will be an interesting test for him if he plays a slower player in the Quarter-Finals.
