ANTHONY McGill is ready to do some damage at this week’s Gibraltar Open.

McGill showed his undoubted potential when he reached last season's World Championship semi-finals. But the two-time ranking-event winner's struggled for results this term, failing to pass the fourth round of an event. 

The Glaswegian potter sparkled with an impressive 4-0 first-round whitewash win against Louis Heathcote.

“My game’s been in good shape all season really,” reflected McGill, who is back in action this morning. My game’s really strong and I’m playing really well in practice.

“It’s coming out on the match table here and there and hopefully that continues. It’s just been tough because I’ve struggled to get up for events, they all feel a bit soulless with everything that’s going on.” 

Golden oldie Alan McManus produced a vintage 4-0 victory of his own and locks horns with Zhao Jianbo this afternoon.

And Fraser Patrick is desperate to back up just his second win of the season when he clashes with young gun Oli Lines today.
