Selby, Wilson reach semis

Three-time champion Mark Selby and 2020 finalist Kyren Wilson advanced to the semifinals of the snooker world championship after completing commanding victories yesterday. England’s Selby beat fellow three-time winner Mark Williams 13-3 with a session to spare at Sheffield’s Crucible Theatre while Wilson reeled off five frames in a row to seal a 13-8 victory over 2010 champion Neil Robertson. Resuming their quarterfinal with a 6-2 lead, Selby reeled off four consecutive frames with the aid of breaks of 96, 58 and 66 before Welshman Williams stopped the rot with a run of 79. However, two more half centuries helped Selby claim the three frames he needed to complete a 13-3 victory. England’s Wilson had earlier booked his place in the semifinals with victory over Australia’s Robertson. He will face either world No. 1 Judd Trump or Shaun Murphy next, while Selby will play Anthony McGill or Stuart Bingham.
