Neil Robertson demolished Ali Carter's bid for world title glory by knocking out last year's beaten finalist at the Crucible yesterday. Australian Robertson surged into the quarter-finals of the World Championship with a 13-8 victory over the Essex cueman and will face Mark King or Stephen Maguire next.

Left-hander Robertson, from Melbourne, extended his overnight 9-7 lead by winning the first two frames, lost the next, but then took the final two with ease.
