Anda Zhang: I wasn't as impressed as some more were in the wake of his Crucible debut, but to take the greatest ever to a decider at such a young age was an achievement. He did strike me as a clever player with potential.
Michael White: He has a good reputation, but that's all I'm going on if I'm being honest. I haven't seen him play personally, if anybody has feel free to comment.
Anthony McGill: same applies
Luca Brecel: he often posts clips of his practice on YouTube, and some of them are downright scary, serious talent without doubt. It's hard to read much into that, but his results in PTCs improved pretty steadily as the year went on and he has a long time to deliever on the potential he's got.
Jack Lisowski: early days, but I like what I saw against Higgins. He seemed to have a bit of swagger, was smart around the table and had good focus in dragging himself back into one. I hope we hear a lot more of him, and I'd be optimistic that we will.
Judd Trump: He divides opinion. Personally, I think he has the potential to be very, very good and can see myself shouting for him somewhere down the line. His game always reminded me of Ronnie's, he has talent in abundance, but there are questions about his attitude. A potential World Champion, but a lot of work to do.
