I'd be surprised to see Trump fail to ever win a title, whereas although Dīng Jùnhuī wouldn't be a surprise to me winning the title, somehow I'd not be that surprised if he never did.
Jimmy White certainly had the opportunities, maybe should have, but I think Hunter and Trump were/are better players, so for me a top four - Hunter, Trump, White, Dīng Jùnhuī.
Yeah I agree, I would actually be a lot more surprised if Trump weren't to win at least one instead of Ding not winning one, because you know Ding just doesnt seem suited for the Crucible for one reason or another. Who knows, if the Worlds moves to China one day than that will be Ding's best chance I think.
For me the best players are: White, Hunter, Trump and Ding, in that order. Trump may surpass Hunter and White if he weren't to win it, as for Ding, as I said above, I wouldn't be too much surprised if he never won it in his career.
