With the dream season Ding had, what better chance than this to win the World Title? If not now after that brilliant season, then when? He still has time on his side, but I honestly have my doubts...
Of course I know many will say Hendry for instance in that 1991 season he didn't win the World Title, so maybe Ding's best chance will come when he hasn't won many titles that particular season.
Burnout though is out of the question here, but it's very intesresting to note prior to this season Ding could only really play his A game in the UK, now it's the total opposite, he plays his A game abroad and especially in China.
At the Masters, UK and Worlds this season, plus the CoC he had terrible runs in all of those, well apart from UK but even that one wasn't very good, so he needs to sort things out.
But it does raise some serious question marks over Ding, and along with Jimmy White he may go down as the best player never to win a World Title, but I hope it doesn't come to that.
