Im not sure Williams believes he can beat Ronnie anymore and therefore a good start is cruical for him and I hope it happens cos it could be magic that match.
That said Ronnie vs Robertson would be special!
You're right yeah, Williams needs to start well and kinda of tell to Ronnie: I'm here to win this.. not just to get beaten again by a player who has got the better of me over the last 10 years... if he doesn't, Ronnie might run away with it... although Ronnie beat Ebdon comfortably, he didn't play that great, what impressed me most was his safety during that match...
As someone said here a few days ago when he won that, Steve Davis in his prime would have been proud of some of the safety shots he managed to pull off..
And yeah a Robbo v Ronnie match will be something special, one I am really looking for if O'Sullivan can overcome Williams.
Another amazing thing is that Ronnie and Mark have met here every 2 years since 2006.
2006: quarter-final Ronnie won 13-11
2008 2nd Round Ronnie won 13-7
2010 2nd Round Ronnie won 13-10
2012 2nd Round Ronnie wins 13-9
