Ding (providing he stays fit and doesn't bloat out again) will be making 147s when he's 40 because like Ronnie he has a stance and technique that is much easier on the body. Hendry copied Davis and moved to cueing foot in line (he was cueing miles outside his hip when he met Davis in their first World final). But his set-up is very hard on the back, shoulders and knees/hips. By the time he was thirty, the high chest had dropped with it his shoulder and the accuracy diminished.
I wonder how long Robbo will keep up his stance/set-up because that looks as nearly debilitating as Hendry's in his prime.
