In the earlier session, Day needed to come from 3-0 down to defeat fourth seed Ding 6-4.

The Welshman levelled before taking the lead after Ding struggled to deal with a snooker. Ding then touched the blue ball with a rest in the next frame to allow Day to clear the table and take a 5-3 lead.

Ding hit back with 100, but Day took the next frame to claim victory.

He will face John Higgins or Anthony McGill in the quarter-final.
