Mensur Suljovic continued his great season with a 3-0 victory over Steve West as he booked his spot in the quarter finals of the World Grand Prix in Dublin.

The players were evenly matched in the first set, which went to a fifth leg. Suljovic hit his favorite D14 to complete a 108-finish and move ahead in sets.

Another decider was required in the second as the pair each broke throw twice. The Austrian then placed another break at a crucial time to double his lead as West became visibly frustrated.

The sixth break of throw in succession put ‘Simply the West’ 1-0 up. Suljovic made it seven with a sensational 140-cbeckout, which he finished off with two double 20’s. After the Englishman had missed two full turns at doubles, the world number seven finally secured a hold of throw to go within one leg of the match. West levelled, but could do nothing in leg five as Suljovic hit double eight to seal the win.

‘The Gentle’ will play the winner of the match between Peter Wright and Mervyn King in the quarters.
