Neil Robertson has moved to No.1 in the world rankings after his 5-1 in the final of the World Open. The Aussie maintained his perfect record in the final of ranking events and has now won six out of six.

Robertson is the eighth player to hold the No.1 spot after Ray Reardon, Cliff Thorburn, Steve Davis, Stephen Hendry, John Higgins, Mark Williams and O’Sullivan.
The world rankings now work as a two-year rolling list and Robertson says he approves of the new system.

Robbo is no. 1
“It means the list is much more up to date and rewards players who are winning tournaments and doing well,” said the Australian, who won the World title last May.
“To be World Champion and World No.1 at the same time is a dream come true.”
