World snooker: Shaun Murphy needs one more frame to reach final

Former champion Shaun Murphy still needs one more frame to reach the World Championship final after Barry Hawkins slowed down his progress in the semi-final.

Murphy resumed the best-of-33 semi-final 13-3 ahead but was left frustrated as Hawkins won five of the eight frames in Friday's evening session.

Hawkins won four frames in a row to prevent Murphy from reaching the final with a session to spare, instead the 2005 champion takes a 16-8 lead into Saturday's final session.
