SNOOKER: WILLIAMS IS THE MASTER.

Mark Williams brought the curtain down on 29 years of Benson and Hedges Masters history last night by denying Stephen Hendry a seventh Wembley title.

Williams won pounds 210,000 along with the gold trophy for his crushing 10-4 success. It was the biggest winning margin since Ronnie O'Sullivan defeated Hendry's fellow Scot John Higgins 9-3 in 1995.

Williams has now won the UK and Masters crowns in the last two months. And he now needs the World Championship at Sheffield in May to complete snooker's triple crown. Williams beat Hendry 10-9 on a re-spotted black in the 1998 Masters final but a close return never materialised.
