Saturday’s final will feature a contest between China’s Ding Junhui and Thailand’s own Tepchaiya Un-Nooh after both players narrowly escaped the semi-finals. In the last round, Un-Nooh came back from down 5-2 to defeat Iran’s Hossein Vafaei 7-6, punching his ticket to the final. After the match, he attributed part of his success to the support of his home crowd. Taking on the 25th-ranked Junhui on Saturday, he’s hoping to leverage that advantage once again.

Reaching the Championship is pretty much the expectation for Junhui who will make his third appearance in the final. The first time he reached the last stage, he was able to collect the win over Stuart Bingham in 2016. Junhui reached the title round in 2018 as well but fell short 8-4 to Kyren Wilson. In the semi-final round, he defeated England’s Tom Ford, holding off a rally to win 7-4.
