Mark Williams

  • Welshman Williams has 22 ranking event wins including becoming the second oldest world champion when he claimed the title this year at the age of 43.
  • Williams' defence of the Northern Ireland Open ended in the second round as he lost 4-3 to Ali Carter having led the match 3-1.

Adam Duffy

  • Duffy suffered a 4-0 whitewash first-round defeat to fellow Englishman Sam Craigie at the recent Northern Ireland Open.
  • Duffy’s best performance of the 2017-18 campaign came in the 2018 World Championship where he won two matches before losing to Xiao Guodong.


Williams has won the previous two meetings between the pair with the last meeting happening back in 2012 with Williams claiming a 4-2 win. World number two Williams should have no issues in brushing aside Duffy and advancing to the second round.
