Rob Cross secured progression to round two and was one of the first to do so by defeating Dimitri van den Bergh.

It was a repeat of their brilliant World Championship epic and once again it was Cross who only just came through. Afterwards he spoke and admitted it is a good feeling to be through after two games and despite saying he has felt the pressure in the past few months for him if he plays well it doesn’t matter.

“It’s a good feeling to be through after two games and I had to play really well to beat Dimitri, he’s a class person both on and off the oche,” said Cross.

“I have been feeling the pressure a bit in the last couple of months but as long as I play well for the rest of the year it doesn’t matter.”
