In the early morning of September 27, in the semi-finals of the European Masters, Selby eliminated Murphy 6-3 and reached the finals of the rankings for the 27th time, hitting his 18th ranking championship tonight.
The last time Selby won the ranking championship was the Scottish Open at the end of 2019. Resuming the semi-finals with Murphy, Selby said: "I think I played very well the whole game. To lead 5-1, I did nothing wrong. Maybe I should win the game 6-1. "
Selby said: "Although I lost in the semi-finals of the World Championships (16-17 lost to O'Sullivan), I was confident when I came here. I gained confidence from the World Championships. I still got it. A lot of positive things. I think this has been proved this week. In the Champions League, I also advanced."
Looking forward to the final, the 37-year-old Leicester said: "It would be great to win tomorrow. This is a very strange moment. There are no spectators. It is great to participate in any competition. I will try my best as always and hope I can Stand on the right side."
