Barry Hawkins set up an all-England final against Ronnie O'Sullivan at the Shanghai Masters after defeating Ding Junhui 10-9.

The tight match hung in the balance for the whole game, as neither player was able to establish a commanding lead.

In the first session, it was Hawkins who produced perhaps the best snooker, with breaks of 100 and then 134.

In the second session, seventh seed Hawkins appeared to be on the end of a Ding defeat with the scores at 9-7.

However he was able to make it 9-8 with a break of 101 before claiming the next two frames without Ding registering a single point.
