Wilson wants to show momentum in Belgium

Tags: Kyren Wilson

Recent World Open finalist Kyren Wilson hopes to see some momentum developing when he heads to next week's European Masters in Belgium. Wilson played some terrific snooker in reaching the final in Yushan last week, though he was undone in the decider by home favourite and world number three Ding Junhui, losing out 10-3.


That was still a morale-boosting effort for Wilson however and he'll attempt to use it as a springboard for further progress in Lommel. "I think the non-stop nature of the tour means that when you do hit a purple patch, you have to make the most of it," Wilson said. "It's quite easy to go on a good run, but it is also easy to go on a bad one. I feel like I’m happy with my game at the moment and that is the most important thing. "When you are in that frame of mind, you can just go out and enjoy your snooker. That is what I did in China. I didn't quite manage to win the final, but I felt I dictated all of the games on my way there. "I'm really looking forward to Lommel and I have to target that event now. "We last went over to Belgium for a PTC event in Antwerp. It was always really well attended and I think all of the players enjoyed it. I'm sure it will be the same case in Lommel."


Amongst the highlights for Wilson in China was a 5-1 demolition of two-time world champion Mark Williams, where he enjoyed a run of 503 unanswered points, just 44 short of Stuart Bingham's record. That was a performance that gave him confidence. "Mark is obviously one of the all-time greats, so to completely dominate the match in the way I did was really pleasing. It wasn't just about who it was against, the fact it was a big quarter-final on television made the win even more special," he added.
