It’s only been two months since Higgins torched a closed-door crucible with a brilliant 147

John Higgins insists the fire of competition continues to burn and he’s on track to get back to his best

The wizard of Wishaw had his hopes of a first ranking event title since 2018 dashed by Judd Trump on Saturday as he descended 6-4 to World Non1 in the English Open semifinals

But the quadruple King of the Crucible has seen a considerable recovery in form at Milton Keynes, as technical adjustments with his chalk and ferrule helped him take down the world Non10 Ding Junhui in the last 16.

Higgins was dumped of crashing but believes it’s only a matter of time before clinching his 31st Ranking Event title

This is how many centuries John Higgins has done in his career! 👏

« You hope so, but you never know [winning trophies] – we’ll wait and see what happens.

“There are recovery spurts – I’m hitting a bit better, so I have to try to take the positives

« I’m disappointed – I missed my chances at the end there I had a good chance to go 5-3 and messed it all up, and I just got weaker and Judd got stronger

« Obviously right now I’m gutted, but if I think about it in a few days I’ve played better songs and I hope I will for the rest of the season. »

World Non7 Higgins, chasing a first classification title since the Welsh Open in 2018, quickly got out of the blocks as a 50 break in first frame gave him the lead

Trump restored parity with his 56, but Higgins hit back with a regular 52

The two – who have 47 major titles between them – then traded centuries on either side of the mid-session interval before a new visit from 107 places the Scotsman 4-3

Higgins missed a golden opportunity to open the light of day in eighth frame, as Trump leveled once more before taking the lead

And a brave 77 effort in tenth frame thwarted Higgins’ hopes and kicked him out of the first Home Nations event of the season.

« I thought I was outdone, really! » @ Judd147t is with @ andygoldstein05 and @ ronnieo147 – and has great things to say about John Higgins 🤝

Higgins says he regained his boast at the Marshall Arena but was left behind in a series of missed opportunities that sent him back to Scotland prematurely

« It’s tough without a crowd, but I liked the buzz of playing, but I just hesitated at the end and you can’t afford to do that with Judd

« I felt good but I missed too many crucial things in the end that you can’t afford to miss against people like Judd »
