LONDON, Oct. 16 (Xinhua) -- Mark Selby's defense of his English Open title continued on Friday, as he beat China's Zhou Yuelong 5-2 in the quarterfinals of this year's tournament.

The 37-year-old English cueman will meet Neil Robertson in the semifinals, after the Australian fired three centuries to defeat Robbie Williams 5-2.

Zhou, 22, started the match with a 2-1 lead but then conceded four frames in a row.

"I didn't play great today but I'm happy to win," Selby told the World Snooker Tour website.

World number one Judd Trump and four-time world champion John Higgins will face off in the other semifinal on Saturday.

Higgins outplayed Jak Jones 5-1 while Trump saw off Kyren Wilson by the same scoreline.

Trump failed to defend his world championship title in August but nevertheless took six ranking titles last season.

Higgins, 45, hasn't won any titles since taking the 2018 Welsh Open. Enditem
