Neil Robertson has apparently found his passport and boarded a plane this afternoon. Let's hope it was to Berlin.
Invariably after scrapes such as this Robertson plays really well. Perhaps this is because he doesn't have time to stress about the actual match because of the pressure of actually getting there.
On the table today there was a big win for Stephen Hendry, which will go a long way towards safeguarding his top 16 place and automatic seeding through to the Crucible.
Hendry beat Judd Trump 5-2 and seemed to play pretty well. The test for him, though, is beating the players who have replaced him in the upper echelons of the ranking list.
Mark Selby is such a player and where Hendry's game is will become apparent when he plays the Leicester man in the last 16.
