In-form Gaultier heads for Manchester!

Fresh from his triumph in the U.S. Open in Philadelphia, France’s Greg Gaultier is seeded to reach the final of the AJ Bell World Championship next week in Manchester.

But the World No2 has been in 3 World finals already – 2006 in Cairo, 2007 in Bermuda and 2011 in Rotterdam – and this time he’s looking to go one better.

Gaultier will take to the court in Manchester on a streak of 22 wins in his last 23 matches, the only blemish being his defeat in the Netsuite Open final at the hands of World No1 and defending World Champion Ramy Ashour.
