Holden, on some of your comments... weren't there rumours that Luca Brecel is slightly socially challenged? https://propelsteps.wordpress.com/2015/ ... ad-autism/
I don't know how much truth there is to this. Luca, if you ever read these boards and this isn't true then:
1. I'm sorry
2. Even if it is, it's obvious you're doing a tremendous job and it seems to me you get on well with the players and youe career is on the up and up. You're doing a great job dealing with any extra stuff.
Back onto Luca.
I asked in the match thread yesterday about his straight bridge arm. It seems to allow for a greater margin of error and more chance for the cue to go off straight in the cueing process.
Anyway, him reaching his first major ranking final at only 20 years of age is an excellent accomplishment. If he's to win the final, I think he must accept the tight situations and not rush his shots when he approaches frame ball, and not pretend to be too casual out there when he's feeling the strain. His coping mechanism is to smile and be casual but it results in him making errors.
