Defending champion and world number one Mark Selby reached the semi-finals of the China Open with a 6-2 victory over Mark Williams in Beijing.

Selby, 34, made breaks of 143 and 136 and next faces fellow Englishman Kyren Wilson, who beat Jack Lisowski 6-5.

Australia’s Neil Robertson made six breaks over 60, including a century, to thrash Stuart Bingham 6-0.
