Mark Williams breezed into the German Open final with a comprehensive 6-1 win over an out-of-sorts Judd Trump in Berlin.

The Welshman took control of the match with breaks of 68 and 109 to go 3-0 in front, before Trump won the final frame before the mid-session break.

But hopes of a Trump comeback were short-lived, with the Bristolian's wayward potting and sloppy safety gifting the final three frames to Williams.

Despite canny positional play and the occasional stellar long pot, Williams was not impressed either with himself or Trump.

He told Eurosport:

" I think that was a poor match from me to be honest, but Judd just looked nervous from the off. Perhaps he was expecting to steamroller me. He was under pressure and I just knew - it's hard to outscore or outpot him; but he's never going to outsafety or outgrind me. I just thought if I can get on top of me I know he's going to go for some crazy balls, but some of those towards the end, it was like he gave up."
