Williams was a pretty comfortable winner in round-one over Marcus Campbell, despite struggling to a 5-4 lead in the first session, he pulled away in the second but knows he must up his game for the world number-one in R2.
O'Sullivan produced a typical Jekyll and Hyde performance in seeing off Liang Wenbo in R1, reeling off a couple of centuries but towards the end was put under pressure, to which he responded well.
Is it too premature to suggest that the winner of this match could win the tournament ? It is a repeat of their R2 match two years ago where O'Sullivan came out victor, including a final-frame 147, and went all the way then.
Who do you see coming out on top this time ?
