Michael Unterbuchner is the first player through to the semi-finals in the men’s draw at Lakeside after coming through a final set thriller against Willem Mandigers.

Unterbuchner was 3-1 down and seemingly heading out of the tournament but came back to level it up and then despite then going 4-3 down, he tied it up.

From there it went to a deciding set in which the German missed chances originally to win the match early; Mandigers hit a 149 checkout to potentially send the tie in his favour.

This wasn’t the case as ‘T-Rex’ went onto win to reach consecutive semi-finals.
