Provisional Rankings

Mark Williams is still No.1 but his leads keeps shrinking. Now he's only 2,487 points ahead of his nearest contender, Ronnie O'Sullivan.

After some very surprising results in the European Open there's no change in positions 3-6. Stephen Hendry, Paul Hunter, John Higgins and Matthew Stevens still lead the way. Stephen Lee and Ken Doherty swap places at 7th and 8th.

Two popular players return to the top 16. Runner-up Jimmy White moves from 19 to 14 while semi-finalist Tony Drago improves two positions to 16th. David Gray and Allister Carter drops out of the elite.

There are also three newcomers in the top 32. Stephen Maguire's win propels him from 35th to 23rd. Graeme Dott (33->28), and Anthony Hamilton (34->31) are the two others. Mark King, Dominic Dale and John Parrott have to give way.

Neil Robertson had a splendid tournament and improves 26 positions to 72nd.
