Judd Trump turned professional in 2005

Judd Trump set up a Players Championship semi-final with five-time world champion Ronnie O’Sullivan by beating Neil Robertson 6-1.

Trump beat O’Sullivan in the quarter-final last year en route to winning the tournament.

Mark Williams overcame fellow Welshman Ryan Day to book his place in the other semi-final.

He will face Anthony McGill or Shaun Murphy, who meet on Friday.

Williams took a commanding 4-0 lead and, despite Day clawing back three frames, he edged a dramatic ninth frame to take the match 6-3.

Trump and O’Sullivan meet on Friday, while the other semi-final takes place on Saturday.

Williams told BBC Radio Wales: “O’Sullivan is the one playing probably the best stuff all season really.

“I’m not too far behind him but he’s the one we’ve all got to beat.”
