Robertson, right, was knocked out in the first round of the World Championship in April and blamed cue tip problems

Neil Robertson beat Jack Lisowski 5-2 to win the first tour event of the new snooker season at the Riga Masters.

It was the former world champion’s 14th ranking title and his performance in the final included a 117 break.

Robertson is playing with a new cue for the first time in 20 years after complaining about issues during the World Championship in April.

Robertson took a 3-0 lead and although England’s Lisowski reduced the deficit, the Australian won comfortably.
