Mark Williams will now move above Ronnie O’Sullivan to second in the world rankings

World champion Mark Williams came back from 9-5 down to beat England’s David Gilbert 10-9 and win his 22nd ranking title at the World Open in China.

The 43-year-old Welshman – who won his third world title in May, 15 years after his previous triumph – took home a winner’s cheque of £150,000.

Gilbert, ranked 29th in the world, was playing in his second ranking final.

Williams’ fourth win this year ensures he leapfrogs Ronnie O’Sullivan to second in the world rankings.
