Ronnie is romping home in his match against Selby, who very much like Wenbo has just not turned up. That saying you can’t take anything away from Ronnie, its not his fault the best around fail to bring their A game.
As my faviouaite players are out and therefore now a nutural I am disappointed in that it would have been great to have a first time winner of this event. Unfortunately that won’t happen now.
TO beat Ronnie you have to win frame after frame in one visit, now in a best of 33/35 John Higgins is the only other player capable of doing that against Ronnie and he is long gone.
Dott will put up a fight but over 33 frames he does not have the firepower to beat an ‘in form’ Ronnie, very much like 04.
Robbo/Murphy/Carter are all good players but again they have not shown the consistent breakbuilding ability that the likes of Ronnie and Higgins have shown.
So this years final will work out very close to last years where by the opponent will get 9 or 10 frames but never really be in the match.
I feel a bit sad that the tournament in terms of its competitiveness ends today, but I fully understand the nature of snooker and this is how it can go. This means the last 4 world titles will have been shared between Ronnie and John, which is some achievement from them both.
Anyway congrats to Ronnie, 4 world titles is about right considering your overall talent in every department of the game ie mental and playing side
Nice jinx attempt
