In case you need much proof to Williams not thinking he'd win in Sheffield over the past couple of weeks the 43 year old claimed before the tournament that he would do the post win press conference naked if he did win.

Mark Williams triumphed in a nerve-jangling Betfred World Championship final against his boyhood adversary John Higgins to win the battle of the fortysomethings and become the oldest world champion since Ray Reardon.
Williams, who won the title in 2000 and 2003, had all but retired from the sport past year, until his wife convinced him to return. He insists he contemplated retirement last summer, having not won a ranking title for six years.
"I'm over the moon - what a match to be involved in", said Williams.

He made breaks of 131, 67 and 82, each time ruthlessly punishing mistakes from Williams whose once huge lead was down to just two frames at 15-13.
'It's unbelievable. Twelve months ago I wasn't even here.
He appeared set for victory in the next frame only to lose from 63-0 up as Higgins, under intense pressure, produced a clearance of 65 to get back to one behind.
Recall that a year ago, Higgins also played in the world Cup final, but in a bitter struggle gave way to a younger Mark Selby.
Asked how his success felt, the Welshman said: "It feels a little bit uncomfortable at the minute. I thought these days had all passed to be honest". My missus couldn't stop crying for ages, I got a little bit emotional towards the end as well.
Williams led 10-7 going into today's final two sessions and swiftly extended his advantage by winning four consecutive frames as he demonstrated his potting prowess.
There's nothing better than a person who does what they say they will. People who don't pike when they say they want to have beers next week or who do actually turn up naked to the press conference after they won the World Snooker Championship like they said they would.
