Judd Trump is through to the final of the German Masters, after comprehensively beating Rod Lawler 6-1 in the semi-final at the Tempodrom in Berlin.

Trump fell behind in the opening frame, but made light work of his 42-year-old opponent – making three centuries along the way.

He will play Ding Junhui in what should be a cracking final tomorrow.

The world number 50 came through three final-frame deciders to reach his first ranking semi-final since 1996, and he took the opening frame with a break of 61 along the way.

That was as good as it got for Lawler though, as Trump responded immediately with runs of 66 and 48 to level.

The world number four then went from strength to strength – making consecutive century breaks of 127 and 122 to go 3-1 up at the interval.

He went 4-1 up after the break and a magnificent 117 in frame six moved him one away from victory.

A run of 46 was enough for the ‘Ace in the pack’ to seal his passage to his first major ranking final since he won the International Championship in November 2012.
