Been a while .
Isee Ron was narrowly beaten by Matthew Stevens.

Players are getting used to Ronnies game and are matching him .

Just proves how good the standard is.


Well the standard certainly wasnt great today in Ronnie's match, Stevens too didnt play well.

Stevens wont win this tournament if he carries on with performances like that, he was just lucky Ronnie had an off day and in all honesty couldnt be much bothered with this tournament since it started.

Steve Peters should have been here <laugh>

Fu 2-1 down v amateur Carty.

No big surprises there, it has been the story of Fu's career, plays out of his skin against the very top players, but against those he should really beat he plays crap most of the times.

maybe they both need to inspire each other and when one reaches the latter stages the other does the same.

It is, but he has showed no consistency whatsover to back that.

He too was playing great stuff at UK Champs and then got beat by McGill in last 16.

I'll tell you I wouldn't be surprised if he lost to Georgiou tomorrow.

But yes a good tournament is long overdue for him.

Me too :-)

Maybe a good run here could kickstart his career again. That performance against Ding was just phenomenal, I really hope it wasn't an one off.

I think it shows that it's just impossible to dominate over long periods these days. These two looked so far ahead of everyone else in December and now they're struggling. Ding had an unbelievable season but now he's flatter than a pancake.

Good article, and I fully agree this doenst suddenly mean Ronnie's aura is gone just because he has lost in recent times against 3 players he has a very good record against. It was just a bad day in each of those, well in Murphy's match he played really well but couldnt convert that match ball in the decider.

And coincidence or not all of them had to win in deciders, so its not like Ronnie was hammered by any of them.

Ronnie will be back stronger, hopefully the Worlds he'll return to great form.

What annoys me is that in the past Ronnie h8ters always discredited wins over these players, saying they gifted matches on a plate without Ronnie doing anything. But the truth is that as soon as Ronnie's standard drops like today or against Williams these players are well capable of beating him.

Couldn't agree more.

This changes nothing, Ronnie can in the future meet them 10 more times and win each of them again, his good record is still there, and only Murphy played well to beat Ronnie, MJW and Stevens played bad, Ronnie was just worst than them.

Decider again like in that PTC?

Trump looks edgy to me so Wasley will fancy his chances if he gets to a decider.

EDIT: As I write this, Wasley misses a straighforward one <doh>

And that's his biggest problem, he's missing way too many easy balls.

Mags is currently set to play Ronnie at the last 16 of the Worlds. So I wouldn't mind seeing him string together some good results to climb up the rankings again.


Mags at Worlds would be easier than Murphy thats for sure.
