It's nearly time for the final of The Welsh Open, and it is already confirmed that a homegrown champion will win out in the week's tournament.


Today's final will see two English players go head to head, with Shaun Murphy hoping to emerge victorious from his first ranking final since the 2021 World Championship, while his competition Robert Milkins will be hoping to secure the top spot in the eight-match BetVictor Series ranking list.

The pair find themselves in the final after winning out over Pang Junxu and Tian Pengfei respectively in yesterday's semi-finals, with Murphy and Pang's match-up proving particularly tight.

The final follows some serious shocks throughout the tournament, with Welshman Mark Williams shockingly dumped out of the tournament by compatriot Jak Jones in round two, and world number one Ronnie O'Sullivan suffering a shock 5-0 defeat to Tian.

The last 10 tournaments on the World Snooker Tour have been won by Englishmen or Northern Irish star Mark Allen, and we now know that trend will continue - but who of Milkins or Murphy will out?

More like this brings you everything you need to know to enjoy watching the tournament, including times and schedule.
