That was an incredible long red from Mark but misses the pink to the middle.
That was a superb frame from Mark, a beautiful crafted 100 break. He didn’t retreated into his shell after the Higgins onslaught, stayed positive and kept going for his shots and he’s just one frame away now at 17-15. The lovely Joanne and the boys are looking a little less tense now.
Our bhoy at the point of no return.
Dig deep John
I suppose the one consolation in Mark Williams’ mind as John Higgins came back at him like a train was that he does have experience of staving off a similar comeback in the final in the past.
Ken Doherty was a long way behind in the 2003 final and got back to 16-16 but Williams dug out the last two frames to win.
Williams was also in a 16-16 situation in the 2000 final against Matthew Stevens and won 18-16.
“WHERE’S THE BLUE BALL GOING?”
I was just thinking the same thing. These big comebacks do take a lot out of the player that’s charging and you do really have to get ahead to complete the recovery, Dennis Taylor in 1985 possibly the exception. Jimmy trailed 4-12 against Steve Davis in 1984 as well, was catching him all the time, but never got ahead and lost 18-16.
Fuck Higgins the cheating cunt.
Excuse me ?
He would never do that to Denise
Would you believe it.
And if there’s one player you don’t do that against, it’s John.
Jesus, that has got to hurt Williams
Guys, that is incredible.
Never, ever, ever write off John Higgins.
And there’s the ultimate proof.
This match just keeps delivering.
