Snooker: Williams is back to his best.

Byline: Adrian Humphries

MARK WILLIAMS is 1-4 to reach tomorrow's British Open final with a victory over Ian McCulloch today and the 2000 world champion should take all the beating in Telford.

Williams, in the semis of a ranking event for the first time since he won the Thai Masters last March, knocked in breaks of 74, 58, 64 and 82 in a 5-1 victory over Ali Carter yesterday.

The Welshman, who won the last event staged in Telford, the 2000 Grand Prix, is feeling happier with his game since joining forces with coach Terry Griffiths. "I was dreading having the balls everywhere because I felt I was going to miss, but I'm playing well again now," said Williams.

McCulloch, a 200-1 shot ante-post, beat John Higgins 5-2 but last year's champion said: "I was garbage."
