However, the natural order of things in sport suggests that at some point his dominance will come to an end. Therefore there is a narrow window for this.
We haven't had a world champion born after 1990 yet. In 2-3 years maybe Yuelong will be dominating, or Bingtao, or Kyren Wilson or maybe even Vafaei. Exciting times ahead.
This really is the key, isn't it?
When Ronnie won two in a row, people were asking whether he'd break Hendry's record. He got to the final again in 2014, lost, and hasn't been close since.
There's obviously no question about whether Selby can
win multiple titles, he already has. Will he, is the question? Or more accurately, can he keep the momentum going to the extent he'll win another four? Seems unlikely.
I think the semis and the final (first session excluded) this year, were amongst the best I've ever seen Selby play. Seems unlikely he'll keep that momentum up.
Not impossible he'll win another four. But very, very unlikely.
