Barry Hawkins survived a stirring fightback from Ryan Day to win the Ladbrokes World Grand Prix 10--7 on Sunday night. b
Hawkins, the world number 12, raced into a 9-3 lead at Preston's Guild Hall courtesy of five century breaks.
But Welshman Day forced his way back into the best-of-19 final by winning four successive frames.
A relieved Hawkins however, held his nerve in the 17th frame to pot the black and clinch the title and claim the £100,000 top prize.
