Gaultier took last semi spot!

"I'm probably in the best shape of my life," Gaultier told MC Andy Kay afterwards. "I've been playing well over the last few months. Tonight I had a lot of motivation and lots of confidence - and I didn't feel under any pressure."

In the last quarter-final match of the AJ Bell World Championship 2nd seed Frenchman Greg Gaultier beat Englishman Daryl Selby in straight games (11-7, 11-4, 12-10) to book the last ticket for tomorrow’s semi finals.
