The number seven seed Chisnall fended off the threat of 2016 semi-finalist Jelle Klaasen in their last 16 clash, hitting a dozen 180s as he reached the quarter finals at Alexandra Palace for the first time in his career.

Chisnall, who has reached three televised finals in 2016, moved a step closer to another after coming back from two legs down in the sixth set to deny Klaasen a decider.

“I’m scrapping hard and I’m glad to win,” said Chisnall.

“I played okay and that was good enough so I’m over the moon.

“I want to play better and I know I can.

“I’ll have to step it up against Gary but I know I can do it.”
