Player of the Season 09/10 - POLL

Postby Bourne

Just a simple vote/thread over the next month or so for Islanders to say who they thought was the best player of the season 2009/10 and why. Here are the strongest candidates:

Neil Robertson - World Champion, Grand Prix Champion and Provisional World Number Two. (Shanghai L32, GP Win, UK L16, Masters L16, Welsh L16, China L16, WC Win)

Ding Junhui - UK Champion, Grand Prix Runner-Up and China Open Runner-Up. One-Year List #1. (Shanghai QF, GP Final, UK Win, Masters L16, Welsh L32, China Final, WC L16)

Mark Williams - China Open Champion, back in World's top-eight. (Shanghai L16, GP SF, UK L16, Masters SF, Welsh QF, China Win, WC L16)

John Higgins - Welsh Open Champion, UK Finalist and back at #1. (Shanghai SF, GP SF, UK Final, Masters L16, Welsh Win, China L16, WC L16)

ive Gone for Ding on a consistent Level of performances Reaching 3 Finals but There is nothing between them with 75% of BBC Tournaments going overseas for the first time.

For me, it's fair to say the two at the top are the strongest candiates. Robbo won two tournaments including the biggest one, but the two tournaments he won were his only good ones (didn't make QF in another), whereas Ding had a more consistent season and made more finals, inc. winning the 2nd biggest tourn.

I have to choose between them, so I am going for Robbo, he's had some tough draws in that time and wasn't on form leading into the Worlds, but I respect anyone who can raise their game when they need to and he did that.

good point chumba people on 606 say he had an easy worlds draw but you could say he was due a better draw considering he had ronnie in round 1 at the masters and higgins in round 2 at the uk championship

draws even themselves itself out IMO

Ding did great and will kick on next year

i am going to stick with ding but how many players has won 2 ranking title in the same season twice only the snooker greats so hats off to robertson.

and a ranking title every year since 2006.

anyone that mocks this guy im sorry but they are clueless at what level he is now playing at as a winner.

Ding's been the most consistent player, but he's had trouble raising his game against top players. Robertson won two rankers which is good going and I think the only players to do that this century are Higgins, Ronnie, Williams, Doherty and Ebdon. Not even Hendry pulled it off. Robertson of course did it in 2006/07 too, but that's the company he's in now. Interesting to note that they're all world champions too.

yes but only Higgins,Ronnie and Williams has won 2 or more Ranking Tournaments in the season twice or more. thats the company Robertson is starting to keep obviously a hell of a long way to go to catch them up but Realisticly Doherty on 6 and Ebdon on 8 is within his grasp.
