English Open snooker final start time: What time is Judd Trump vs Neil Robertson?

Judd Trump and Neil Robertson have booked their spots in the final of the 2020 English Open. Robertson beat defending champion Mark Selby in the first semi-final, while world No 1 Trump got the better of John Higgins in the other last-four clash.

“I thought I got outplayed,” Trump said afterwards.

“He was putting me under pressure. I was under it big-time, I thought he played well.

“Towards the end he had a couple of chances, and that last frame he was a little bit unlucky.

“He’s one of the greatest players ever. The way he started off, I was fearing the worst.

“I didn’t play my best today, that’s why I’m surprised I won.”

Robertson and Selby need a deciding frame to separate them, with the Australian edging it 6-5.

“It was a fantastic match,” said Robertson. “Mark was as tenacious as ever.

“I had most of the run of the ball, we had a joke about it at the end. But you have to take advantage when it goes your way.

“I was lucky in the last frame when I missed the long red and didn’t leave Mark anything.

“Then he had a chance but he rolled up to the yellow to snooker me.

“When I had a similar chance I went for the brown because I’d rather lose a match going for a pot than playing safe.”
