Trump in control: Snooker World Championship day 9

Judd Trump has one foot in the semi-finals of the World Snooker Championship as he leads Stephen Maguire 7-1.

Trump won the final 6 frames in his second-round match against Ding Junhui and started where he left off in his quarter final, winning the first 6.

He made three century breaks during the session and looks set to be the competitions first semi-finalist.

In same side of the draw, Gary Wilson looks set to face Trump in their semis as he leads Ali Carter 10-7.

Former taxi-driver Wilson, who shocked Mark Selby in the second round, trailed 3-0 but won the next five frames to take control of the match.

Ali was a runner-up in the World Championships to Ronnie O’Sullivan in 2008 and 2012, but looks like he is on course for his second-successive quarter-final exit.

On the other side of the draw Neil Robertson and last years runner-up John Higgins are in a stalemate as it finished 4-4 in their first session.

The 2010 World Champion led 3-1 and 4-2 but Higgins fought back to keep his hopes of winning his first World Championship since 2010.

Meanwhile David Gilbert leads Kyrie Wilson 10-6 to take control of his quarter-final match-up.

Gilbert beat defending champion Mark Williams in his last match at the Crucible and looks set for his first ever World Championship semi-final.

The pair were tied at 4-4 after their first session but Gilbert dominated the second, including a break of 102.
