China's Ding Junhui said he felt "ready" to win the World Championship after booking a quarter-final place with a 13-9 win over Mark King at Sheffield's Crucible Theatre on Monday. 

Ding Junhui of China lines up a shot during the World Snooker Championship 2013 first round match at The Crucible in Sheffield, England, on April 24, 2013. Ding said he felt "ready" to win the World Championship after booking a quarter-final place with a 13-9 win over Mark King at Sheffield's Crucible Theatre on Monday.

No Chinese player has yet won the World Championship, but former Masters and UK champion Ding has long been tipped as the man most likely to make that breakthrough and take snooker's top title to a country where the sport has been enjoying a boom for several years.
