For the first time actually Ronnie won a World title the way he won it this year. You saw him make some fantastic breaks like he always does but then he also made a lot of basic errors. I think he missed like three blacks off the spot against Ding in the final session. Against Williams he missed a simple blue which was matchball. Against Wilson he was completely gone in the 2nd session. Dont know how he won 4 frames.
There was a lot of easy balls missed but he always came up with an one visit break to compensate it. Which was enough to win the World title.
I think the bottom line for the 2020 WC was that everyone was rusty, and Rusty Ronnie has pretty much always been better than Rusty Anyone Else. Yes, he made mistakes that he wouldn't normally make, but so did everyone else, and Ronnie arguably made fewer...
