As a result it has came to shock me and many others the number of seeds struggling at this year’s World Championships, with many already eliminated and others close to that point as the week continues.
I would suggest only Neil Robertson of the top seeds has produced anything like the type of form expected. Of course round 1 is only about winning the match, so for Higgins, Ronnie, Magure etc they have time to up their game – others like Allen, Lee, Dott, Gould and Bingham don’t have that luxury. With Selby, Ding and Trump not sailing it, what has bucked the trend from the last couple of seasons?
Is it a result of the top players playing too much snooker? Were they over confident? Did previous good from make them over confident?
