These are not predictions. Who do you want to win each of the first round matches? And explain why you want them to win.
I'll go first.
Mark Selby v Shaun Murphy - Probably Selby. I do quite like Murphy's style of play, but he's a bit of a douche at times. I'll root for Selby. But at the end of the day, I got tickets to this match and I just want it to be decent.
Stuart Bingham v Marco Fu - I like both players, can't decide. Might let you know once I'm watching the match and finding myself rooting for one of them.
Neil Robertson v Robert Milkins - No disrespect to Milkins, but he's not going to win the tournament. Might as well have somebody who has a chance of winning it all go through to the next round.
Judd Trump v Stephen Maguire - I want Mags to win, Judd is a div.
Ronnie O'Sullivan v Ricky Walden - It won't happen, but I'd like to see Ricky get revenge for last year. Also, it'll be funny if Ronnie loses because his fans will all be on here saying that he's finished as a player, only for him to win the Welsh Open and The Crucible.
Barry Hawkins v Ali Carter - Ordinarily I'd root for Barry as he seems like a nice guy. Ali's been through a lot though. And if he wins, Wild will go mental complaining that his ranking shouldn't have been frozen. I think we should all root for Ali to win the whole tournament.
Mark Allen v John Higgins - Allen is a idiot. If Higgins wins, it'll be interesting to see if MA blames everybody in Scotland.
Ding Junhui v Joe Perry - I'd quite like to see Higgins vs Ding in the next round.
