I agree with this.
Judd definitely has all the talent, and he has clearly worked hard on improving his all-round game.His safety game has improved a lot and so has his attitude. He does tend to perform badly against lower ranked players sometimes, so this could be a problem. Also in his last match against Ronnie, he did choke a couple of times in the final frames and couldn't get over the winning line despite having several chances... So, it wouldn't surprise me to see Judd win the world championship this time, but the number one favourite for me is Ronnie.
