LONDON - World No. 1 Judd Trump and world No. 3 Neil Robertson both defeated opponents from China on Saturday to reach the final at the UK Snooker Championship.

Sunday's final will be the duo's 22nd meeting with Trump winning 12 of the previous 21

The 31-year-old Trump with 19 ranking event titles on hand was too strong for Lu Ning, who played in the semifinal of a ranking event only for the second time.

Trump finally beat world No. 40 Lu 6-2, with the Englishman reaching his 30th ranking event final.

"Lu should have won the first frame tonight. After winning it, I felt in control," Trump told the World Snooker Tour website. "I made mistakes tonight and I'll need to cut those out in the final."

Trump's last rival in the tournament is Robertson, as the Australian ace knocked out Zhou Yuelong 6-2 in the other semifinal on Friday.
