BBC Sport - World snooker: Shaun Murphy needs one more frame to reach final
Murphy misses chance for a day off
- From the section Snooker
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.
