Barry Hawkins (8/1 – The Masters 2022 Outright) says he will have to “up my game” against Judd Trump in the semi-finals of The Masters after sensationally knocking out Mark Selby in the quarter-final stage on Friday evening.

World number one Selby was the overwhelming favourite to advance into the semi-finals of the tournament at Alexandra Palace but he was well below his best and only managed to win one frame during the contest.

Hawkins, a beaten finalist in this event in 2016, only made two half-centuries but nothing else was really needed as he managed to make the most of an average performance from his fellow Englishman to triumph 6-1.

The 42-year-old will now take on Trump for a place in the final following his own 6-1 win over rival Kyren Wilson and the Hawk is priced at 5/2 to cause another upset, while the Juddernaut is the firm 3/1 favourite.

Speaking after his victory over Selby, Hawkins told BBC Sport: “Mark was not at the races today and I picked him off really. I am going to have to up my game against Judd because he is a scoring machine but I am delighted to be in the semis.”

The Trump and Hawkins match is the second semi-final taking place on Saturday, due to start at 7pm, with the first last-four clash pitting Mark Williams against Ronnie O’Sullivan’s conqueror, Neil Robertson (Williams 2/1, Robertson 2/5 – Match Betting).

Welshman Williams, who knocked out John Higgins in the last round, is aiming for a third Masters title and is 7/1 to achieve this feat, while his Australian opponent is looking to lift the trophy for the first time since 2012 and can be backed at 13/8.
