Really can''t argue with those stats, must be something in that ... everyone wants to have that world champion scalp on their CV so it made Robbo a wanted man. Next season he'll have a bit of that pressure eased and he can get back to the level he showed a couple of years ago on a more consistent basis.

For Trump, you don't really get much more chalk and cheese than Fu/Gould so it's hard to analyse R2 too much yet but i'd make him slight favourite against either but that's where he tends to lose a lot of matches, when he's expected to win. I much prefer him as underdog.

I think he would rather face fu as he will feel he has the measure of him after winning at china in round 1 match

Gouldy is a real wildcard and anything could happen

On robbo i would love him to get to a uk or masters final next season as he seems to fall early in those 2

Either of the second-tier majors (UK/Masters) and I think he'd be over the moon tbh, even if he exits the worlds early, he would join a strong list of players in the history to win 2+majors with a world crown included.

Trump looked really strong yesterday, I don't think he will let this opportunity slip. You don't underestimate anyone in the Last 16 of the worlds.

I can't see Trump losing in next round. He is mentally very stable and got a great temperament, he won't go back to his old habits.

Fair points but if and its a big if he faces gouldy and martin can produce the form from session1 and 2 against robbo

it could be a cracker

It's important Judd stays in the moment, it's tricky now because he has to wait so long for his next match and obviously he's on a massive high from last night. He's travelled back to London apparently so he can switch off for a few days but he's in unchartered territory now at this stage of the Worlds and needs to make sure he finds his game in time for the second-round because either opponent, if he gets behind early it'll be tough. But he's reacted well to new, difficult positions in the last couple of weeks so who's to say he won't again here ?

I think Trump would fancy a clash with Fu far more than Gould. Fu is a safe player, doesn't take unnecessary risks, but is in my opinion too negative to outgun the really top players on a consistent basis. Martin Gould will have a right crack at whoever he faces.

I must say, the player who wins on day one has an awful long time to wait around, or is it that way for all of the and I just didn't notice?

I see the intellectual Bristol Rag Doll getting beaten in the 2nd round. I will have some heavy money on whoever he plays. Robbo was rubbish yesterday and still won 8 frames.
