For me, it wasn't about Williams' bottle it was about Higgins' strength. I thought Higgins would find a way to win as he has so many times before.
I'll admit though that I wasn't expecting that break at 17-16. That was incredible.
So Wild, I know you've said previously about how the Higgins/Williams final says a lot about young players. But what did you think about the match?
Look im a Snooker Fan through and through and i want the sport to evolve and you need young players to push out the older brigade and for me that part is extreamly sad that Mark Williams after 15 years wins another WC in 2003 Ding Junhui was about to turn pro as was Judd Trump and yet Williams managed to win it before them.
But as a Match up in the Final it was Brilliant and so unpredictable because you had the intense Scott vs the Laid Back taff and i for 1 knew Williams would never compete in one chance Snooker with Higgins BUT he would always pot the important shot under the most pressure and that would give him a chance to win.
