World Snooker Championship: Former champion in action as Higgins level with Allen | Other | Sport

David Gilbert revealed he’s ‘feeling good’ after a stylish round-two victory over Robert Milkins. 

Gilbert ran out a 13-4 victor over the 16th seed, with the Englishman having already knocked reigning champion Luca Brecel out of the competition. 

Speaking after his win, he said: “I’m feeling good, building confidence every game and I put in a proper session and nice to know I can still play a little bit – I’ve been playing shockingly [before the tournament]. If you’re going to time it, right, you might as well do it for this one.

“Fitness wise I feel so much better and the lesson I learned from when I got to the semi-final was you have to be as fit as possible. I’m using my time wisely, eating properly and the right things. I’m hitting the gym, pure weights and just trying to lift as heavy as I can. I’m going to smash the gym and keep eating the right stuff.

“I couldn’t care less about the money, you can take that half a million. If I won that thing that’s my life here. I never think of money, never played for money, I just want to be a winner.”
