Ken Doherty vs Mark Williams. There's a match that takes me back. They are two of my favourite players of all time, to be honest. The 2002 UK Championship final, and the 2003 World final were both classic matches. Takes me back to watching snooker at university.
Mark Williams won both, and I was neutral. Though, I did want Ken to win one of those tournaments at least, as Mark was so dominant at the time. I thought he'd go on to dominate the scene for years, at the time. Though after that I always rooted for who a win would be more important to.
I was lucky enough to be in the live crowd for Ken Doherty vs Mark Williams at the 2008 Masters. I rooted for Mark, as he was looking like he might drop out of the top 16, and Ken was doing alright. However, tomorrow will be roles reversed. Mark is World Number one, officially at least. Ken is trying to climb the rankings. There's not enough of Ken on TV these days.
Behind John Higgins vs Ronnie O'Sullivan, this probably is the match which has the best memories for me. Also, I got on BBC and Eurosport for running down and getting Ken's autograph after that Masters match. I was televised doing so.
I want whoever wins this to take the trophy.
