World Snooker Championship 2011 - Day 13 - Trump & Williams hold advantage after first session

28.4.2011 Day 13

Great semi-final line up we have got this year! Stephen Hendry announced he would not retire next season! Great news for fans!!! :-)

Afternoon Session
SF1 - Judd Trump v Ding Junhui

Ding is 3-5 behind Trump after first session
Two young men meet at the semi-final. Ding Junhui wins the opening frame with 102, great start for Ding! Trump makes a brilliant reply with 110 to level 1-1. In the third frame, crazy clearance by Trump takes him lead for the first time, 2-1. Trump wins another frame and lead Ding 3-1 before mid session. Ding pulls one back after mid session before Judd Trump extends his lead to 4-2. Ding trials 3-4. Judd Trump ends the first session with a 5-3 lead. We have a great first session, well played Judd. :-)

We saw some amazing exhitibition shots from Trump after crossing the winning line. I agree what BBC commentary said yesterday, we can see some shawdon of Jimmy White on Judd. Judd played many crazy shots or some shots that elder players would not choose, Ding definitely wants to stop him today. Trump does not have very good cueball control and do poorly in safety. Ding should put more safety into his game to score more frames.

Evening Session

SF2 - John Higgins v Mark Williams

Not a good start for John
A rematch of 2010 UK Championship Final. At that time, Higgins beats Williams 10-9 cameback from 5-6. Williams would like to take revenge of it ;-) Williams wins the first  frames before Higgins takes the following with 135. Williams leads 3-1 up on Higgins before mid session. After mid session, Higgins levels the match with 127, 3-3. Williams wins the last two frames of the session with 74. Mark Williams holds a 5-3 lead, two frames advantage over John Higgins. 

There are a lot of tight frames in this session, more safety battle is played. Although John contributed two centuries in the session but he is 3-5 behind Williams. Both players do not get use to play on the new table. I wish they can raise their performance tomorrow.
