Ding Junhui stayed on course to become only the third man to successfully defend the Maplin U.K. Snooker Championship title.

The Chinese teenager, who captured the sport's second most prestigious crown as a qualifier last year, won 9-5 against Matthew Stevens to reach the quarterfinals in York on Tuesday.

Ding arrived in host city York at midnight Friday after collecting three gold medals at the Asian Games in Qatar last week.

However, he admitted his busy schedule is taking its toll.

"I'm not feeling very stable just now." said Ding after ousting Stevens in a performance that contained plenty of his trademark high breaks but also some basic errors due to lack of focus.

"It felt quite hot in the arena and that disturbed me. I'm just relieved to have won because I didn't play very well.

"I didn't feel very confident before the match and I was a bit worried in the first session because Matthew played well. But I feel better when I start playing."

It was a typical Ding display. He produced some brilliant long pots and compiled breaks of 111, 100, 92 and 81 but also played shots where a lack of concentration was evident.
