Fu in action in the game.

Marco Fu's return to form continued as he fired two centuries and four more breaks over 50 in a 5-2 win over Robert Milkins at the Hong Rui Ma Yushan World Open.

Earlier this year, Fu was diagnosed with retinal degeneration and had laser eye treatment to correct the problem. He then took several months away from the tour in order to recover, returning at the World Championship where he lost in the first round.

The 40-year-old from Hong Kong now looks to be getting back to his best, having played some tremendous snooker so far this season. Runs of 78, 118, 58, 103, 93 and 96 today helped him into the quarter-finals, where he will face David Gilbert.

Victory in that match would get Fu back into the world's top 16 and earn him a place in next month's Shanghai Masters, which has become a lucrative invitation event.
