THE LOWDOWN

KYREN WILSON

  • Kyren Wilson's campaign has yet to really get going and he will hope to turn that around in this first round of the Masters.
  • The 28-year-old made the final of the Paul Hunter Classic earlier in the season but his best ranking event performance was a semi-final appearance in the World Open.
  • Wilson reached the final of the Masters in 2018 but was defeated by Mark Allen and his other two entries have seen first round defeats.

JACK LISOWSKI

  • Jack Lisowski will enter the Masters for just the second time but will hope for better success than his first round exit last season.
  • Lisowski holds a 7-4 win record over Wilson but the latter has come out on top in their last two meetings which were both this season.
  • It is likely that Lisowski will hold little fear heading into this contest after his recent efforts at the Scottish Open when he was narrowly defeated by Mark Selby in the final.

THE PREDICTION

Kyren Wilson faces Jack Lisowski in the first round of the Masters in a game that looks very evenly-matched. The pair have not had the best of success this season but will both view this as a contest that they can win in what is likely to be a long match which should see over 9.5 frames.
