What is Mark Williams' chances of winning?

Postby SnookerFan

He's coming back into form at the moment, and he came perilously close to winning the UK Championship. He has Ding in the first round, who blows hot and cold. And has bad memories at Wembley. Ding could provide him with a very stiff challenge. Or her could wilt.

If Williams wins he'll have to play the winner of Higgins vs Dott, then with a possible semi against Selby or Murphy, and an almost guaranteed final against Ronnie. Tough draw, but Williams was a tournament winner last year, and has a PTC win this season. Has he got any chance of winning? I've said before I'd make Selby and Ronnie has the two favourites. But Mark Williams is battling it out with Higgins as third favourite. If they met in the Quarter Finals, it'll be a cracker. I might even get tickets.
