Judd Trump beat Neil Robertson in a final frame decider to win his 18th career ranking title at the English Open in Milton Keynes.

Trump, who had trailed 7-4 after losing the first three frames of the evening session, produced a brilliant 114 break to seal a 9-8 victory in what also marked his 10th consecutive win in a ranking final.

Robertson had produced three quality centuries of his own, including a 125 total clearance in the penultimate frame of a high-quality encounter.

Trump told Eurosport: "It was a really tough final and I felt most of the game Neil was probably the better player, he scored a lot heavier than me.

"The way Neil played at no point did I think I was going to win the trophy. I had to go out and earn that one, it was probably my toughest final in five years."

Trump had edged into a 3-1 lead, but Robertson wrested the momentum by the end of the opening session, firing a break of 128 in the seventh frame and hauling the match back level at 4-4.

The Australian took the first frame of the evening session, then capitalised on a series of errors from Trump to establish a commanding lead.

Trump broke down on a break of 52 in the 10th frame and Robertson punished him with a 75 clearance to go 6-4 in front.

And a missed red in the next let in Robertson to make his second century of the match, a break of 114 stretching his advantage to 7-4.

Trump settled his nerves with a break of 76 in the next and reduced the deficit to 7-6 after Robertson failed to punish him for missing a simple blue off its spot.

Robertson missed a golden chance to move one frame from victory when he broke down on a break of 65 in the next, a missed red to the middle letting in Trump to win his third frame in a row and level the scores.

It was Trump himself who went one from victory but a poor break-off in the next was all it took for Robertson to rattle his third century of the match, a 125 total clearance, to force the decider.

After responding by wrapping up his victory in one visit, Trump said he was happy with his game which also took him to the semi-finals of last month's European Masters.

"I have had a few question marks over my form but it's a little bit harsh expecting fireworks every time I play," added Trump.

"That doesn't happen. But I'm happy with how I'm playing and how I am able to dig in when I need to."
