The couple will meet for the third time in less than a year with cutlery on the line.
Judd Trump and Neil Robertson will play the final of the English Open 2020 on Sunday at the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes.
Trump won the final three frames to beat John Higgins 6-4 in Saturday’s semifinals, not long after Robertson beat reigning champions Mark Selby over the distance in the first encounter in the last four games.
A similarly close title taker could be in store if some of the world’s best competitors renew their rivalry with one another.
Until the 2019/20 campaign was suspended in March due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Trump and Robertson were the standout players of the last term.
The number one in the world made history by hitting a record six ranked events, while Robertson did not shy away from honors with three trophies from that period.
Of course, Trump and Robertson faced each other twice in the final, with the former having the lead in the German Masters.
However, Robertson’s triumph at last year’s Champion of Champions will be remembered by many snooker fans as one of the greatest showdowns of recent times.
The Australian prevailed in a high-profile fight against Trump with a classic tie that ended 10: 9.
There will be no spectators for the 2020 English Open final, but many distant viewers are hoping for an equally dramatic affair to wrap up this week’s Home Nations series event.
Trump has a slightly superior head-to-head record from his career meetings, but there’s really not much between them – perhaps due to the fact that neither player has won more than two games in a row against the other. (without the Championship League)
The best-of-17-frame game is expected to have plenty of big breaks as two of the game’s toughest scorers take center stage again.
The result will not have a direct impact on the ranking as Trump is still way ahead in the official ranking and Robertson is too far away from world champion Ronnie O’Sullivan to regain second place.
However, both players compete for the grand prize of £ 70,000 and the chance to win the coveted Steve Davis Trophy.
Robertson is facing a 19th tournament win in the career ladder, a record that would put him in fifth place on the all-time list above Selby and within just three of Mark Williams.
Trump, meanwhile, would hit the Melbourne man’s current record of 18 if he emerged champion instead.
The 31-year-old’s record in the final of the rankings was so impressive that he hasn’t lost any of his last nine games when the winner’s check was on the line.
It promises to be a quality final of the 2020 English Open, and you can catch the action live on Eurosport, Quest and Matchroom.Live (selected regions).
