Ronnie O’Sullivan marked 12th time in Cham's Semis face Selby

Ronnie O’Sullivan beat Mark Williams to reach Snooker championship 2020 Semi-finals.

Ronnie O’Sullivan came from 8-4 down to beat Mark Williams 13-10 at the Betfred World Championship, reaching the semi-finals for a record-equalling 12th time.

O'Sullivan, 44, now faces fellow Englishman Mark Selby, 37, in the last four in a repeat of the 2014 final.

Three-time champion Selby had earlier beaten Australia's Neil Robertson 13-7 in their last-eight match.

Englishman, was as ruthless as ever, making five centuries and seven more breaks over 50 across the contest. Two more wins will give him a sixth world snooker Championship titles, bringing him within one of Hendry’s record of seven.

 O'Sullivan, now won all five meetings with Williams at the Crucible, and has lost just once to his old adversary in their past 12 ranking event matches.

Five-time champion O'Sullivan's last appearance in a Crucible final was his 18-14 defeat by Selby six years ago and he says he is not holding out much hope of avenging that loss.

Ronnie O’Sullivan Remarks

"If the white was more than three foot away from the next ball it was not going in," said O'Sullivan.

"If I had a cue action I could play. It was embarrassing. It was like going into the US Open with just a three-iron in your bag.

"It makes life so much more difficult but I found a way and managed to create amongst the balls. It was either really good or really bad."

"I have no consistency and I haven't had that for six or seven years hence why I haven't done well here," O'Sullivan added.
