Australia's Neil Robertson and Marco Fu are all-square at 4-4 in the second round of the World Championship.

The 2010 champion Robertson looked in fine form, stroking in breaks of 105, 90 and 62 to open up a 4-1 advantage.

But Hong Kong's Fu showed his battling qualities, compiling a superb 118 break followed by 60 to take three in a row and level.

Former champion Graeme Dott trails 2013 finalist Barry Hawkins 5-3, with both matches resuming at 19:00 BST.

In an often scrappy encounter, Scotland's Dott managed high breaks of 64 and 51, but a 91 from Hawkins allowed him to open up a two-frame advantage.

Defending champion Mark Selby is 6-2 up against China's Ding Junhui, while Stephen Maguire leads Rory McLeod by the same scoreline. They resume at 14:30 BST.
