World Championships 2010 : ROUND 1 DRAW !!!

Postby Bourne

The draw for the last 32 of the Betfred.com World Snooker Championship has been made for the 2010 tournament. It has pitted two talented Chinese qualifiers up against two legends of the game, 2008 champion Ronnie O'Sullivan up against Liang Wenbo while 7-time Crucible champion Stephen Hendry faces Anda Zhang who was a relative unknown before qualifying this week. Defending his title, John Higgins goes up against Barry Hawkins who is still searching for his maiden victory in Sheffield.

Don't mind who Ding gets, he got one of the hardest draws last year and won. Similarly with Williams, everyone said he was the hardest draw and he lost !

Exactly.

I would prefer Liang to be drawn in either of the middle two sections, but I have a feeling he'll be in quarter 4 :roll:

In terms of a favourable route for any qualifier, they will probably look at middle two sections for a chance at a sustained run however there are individuals in other quarters they would be fancied to beat for just a match win e.g Mark King

Cope vs Robbo (would be tense and be big bragging rights for me or GJ, perhaps not a good idea for them to meet so early)

Dott vs Ebdon (come on Dotty)

Hendo vs Campbell (oh yes please)

ROS vs Holty (lots of table whacking action, probably both players getting warned)

Murphy vs Wenbo (delicious first rounder)
