“Ronnie is going to have a tough match,” Higgins said. “Judd is going for his second.
"He’s had that unbelievable match against Mark Williams and will be high as a kite so it should be a great occasion for snooker.”
Defeat for Higgins capped an impressive yet frustrating season for the Scot. He won the Championship League, but tasted defeat in five finals and he feels his game is just below the top bracket at present.
"I feel I am just a level below them," Higgins said. "I have not won the big titles, but I have had some big moments."
