This enigmatic 21 year old, Judd Trump displayed exactly why he is the snooker’s rapidly rising star with a sparkling victory in his World Championship semi-final against Ding Junhui. The last Englishman, favoured by our London escorts, standing in Sheffield Classic produced a consistently high-class display in the game finishing up a well deserved victor over his counter-part.
After some early sensational potting at high pace with total control over his cueing action, Judd out-classed the brilliance of Junhui. The natural left-hander also proved his prowess by incorporating some stunning right-handed play, making unproblematic shows of awkward bridging, in the match. Trump promised to entertain at the onset of the tournament and he made good with sheer brilliance.
John Higgins problem free is finding inspiration in his bid to win a fourth World Championship at the Crucible. The world ranked No 1, finally overcame his opponent in a thrilling and breath-taking semi-final with Mark Williams. Higgins is aiming to become only the third player to win four or more titles at the championships and has revealed he would like to triumph on snooker's greatest stage in honour of his late father.
Higgins quoted as saying: "This tournament's a test of everything. Whether you can get to sleep at night; your whole nervous system is in meltdown for 17 days, it's just how you handle it. I suppose that's the key. I hope I have experience to help here, but experience only gets you so far. You have to have the ability to go with it."
The race for the Worlds Number 1 spot intensifies as Higgins centuries keep amassing although he is still behind Williams. Whatever happens on the table in the next few days, Mark Williams will over-take John Higgins as world No 1 for the start of next season’s battles. The Welshman would have loved to join his opponent and Ronnie O'Sullivan on three Crucible titles. As it stands Higgins could now be up for title number 4.
