Snooker's Mark Williams hits out at "stupidest question"

April 30, 2022

Mark Williams has hit out at the 'worst question he's ever heard' after he was edged out by Judd Trump in the World Snooker Championships.

The pair had played out an all-time classic at the Crucible as Trump saw his lead cut from 12-15 to trailing 16-15. But Trump was able to turn it around once more to claim the match.

Rob Walker asked Williams after the final ball was potted: "Do you think he [Judd Trump] can go on and with this now, from what you've seen?" And Williams hit back with a simple response: "I've been asked some stupid questions in my time, but that's up there."

Trump will now face Ronnie O'Sullivan in the World Championship final. O'Sullivan beat John Higgins to book his place in the final, becoming the oldest finalist since Ray Reardon reached the 1982 final aged 49.

"There were so many emotions going through that game," Trump told the BBC.

"I knew he would fight back at some point but he [Mark Williams] played unbelievably and I was just sat there. It made it easier for me to take because I was not doing much wrong.

"I was actually enjoying watching him and he was incredible. I was praying he was going to make some mistakes and I had all my luck in the last frame. For two of them [cross doubles] to go your way you know it is your day."
