Mark Williams vows to bare all if he wins the World Snooker Championship

Mark Williams has promised he will deliver his post-match press conference naked if he wins the World Championship on Monday.

The 43-year-old has rolled back the years to reach his first Semi-Final at The Crucible since 2011 and is on course to claim a first world title since 2003.

Williams, the world number six, faces Barry Hawkins over four sessions for a place in Sunday's final and has promised to bare all if he goes on to lift the trophy in Sheffield.

"If I do win this for a third time, 15 years after the last one, I will come in and do my press conference naked. How about that?" said Williams.

"I'm sure a lot of people would hold me to that now I have said it!"

Williams has enjoyed a remarkable renaissance this season, winning the Northern Ireland Open and German Masters, as well as reaching the Semi-Finals of a further three ranking tournaments.

The Welshman has dispatched Jimmy Robertson, Robert Milkins and Ali Carter en route to the Last Four and is now within touching distance of the record £425,000 top prize.

Looking ahead to his Semi-Final clash with Hawkins, Williams offered: "It's going to be special.

"I'm going to enjoy this more than any other Semi-Final I've been in because the tour is getting stronger, the standard's going up and I'm getting older so I don't know how many more years I'm going to be getting to Semi-Finals.

"I'm only two matches away and I'm playing some of the best stuff I've played for donkey's years.

"I'm playing with a lot of confidence, I'm relaxed and even when I'm throwing frames away, I couldn't care less, I just get on with it like I used to back in the good old days.

"I don't really worry about who I play, I'm just over the moon to be in the Semi-Finals and can't wait to get out there."
