I expect him to do well here. But if he wants to live up to being No.1 he has to show it in the majors and he hasn't done that for 2 years now.
True. But as World Number 1, but I'd hate to see a WN1 do well in the majors, then do feck-all in the lesser tournaments. That's not World Number 1 level consistency, in my mind.
Momentum comes from winning matches, no matter what the tournament is.
if the UK and WC had proper ranking points which elevated them properly above the rest of the rankers, then maybe wed have a more legit world number 1
the biggest events should stand out far more in terms of impact on rankers
under Walkers 6 ranker calendar the UK and WC combined accounted for 41% of the seasons total (18000/43000) Now with all the added events (which im not complaining about), the UK and WC combined only account for 20% of seasons total points (18,000/89,000)
unless the tariffs are increased, then as more and more events get added to the calendar, the UK and WC are gonna lose even more prestige and importance
