New world champions this decade

Postby Juddernaut88

Snooker during the modern era (1970s onwards) has always seen a few new world champions in a decade. In the 2010s we had 4 new world champions Neil Robertson, Mark Selby and Judd Trump. There were 5 in the 2000s Mark Williams, Ronnie O'Sullivan, Peter Ebdon, Shaun Murphy and Graeme Dot.

Which players do people feel can achieve it this decade? or will this be the 1st decade where we don't have a new world champion? I've listed 9 players and allowing people to vote for 2 players on the list.

The poll says “likely”. Not “certain”.

Jimmy White is way past it and needs to retire.

Ding will NEVER win it.
NEVER EVER !!!
So stop with the Ding crap. :td:

If he couldn't do it when he was practicing harder and was completely focused on snooker, how on Earth do u expect him to do it now, when he's not practicing as hard and his mind is more focused on other things (like his family) ?!???????????????
Oh, and he's mentally weak. The end.

Bingtao is the most likely cause he is very young and has time on his side.

Disappointed you can't vote for multiple options as there will most likely be multiple winners. Anyway, the easiest way to predict this is to state that out of that list, Ding, Allen,Maguire, Carter and Brecel are near certainties not to win it (for a variety of reasons such as age, current ability, no previous final appearances for some, motivation and ability to deal with expectation)

Answer my question and stop pretending like you're an Oracle or something.
Given that at the moment he's not investing as much in snooker, how can he win it ?!?????? :irk:

I don't need to answer. I may as well ask you how can Judd Trump win the 2019 World Championship. It's done.

Here's an idea. If you're so confident he will, let's bet on it.
I'll put up 100 $ (don't know exactly how many Irish pounds that is) that he doesn't win it.
We can even drop that to a symbolic 10 $ if it seems too much for you .

Do we have a bet ?

That's because Judd Trump is Judd Trump. Ding Junhui isn't Judd Trump, he's Ding

But it does prove he's far from mentally weak.

He's not mentally weak outside WC

He's mentally weak inside WC

Ding needs Judd's swag and confidence and mental fortitude to win a WC Judd manages to beat his demons and put on a clinic in the final dismantling a 4x WC champion like he was Chris Wakelin

Hard to see Ding ever do that or play like that against a formidable opponent

Re: New world champions this decade

Postby Acé

Look at Judd's head to head vs Ronnie and Selby compared to Ding's head to head vs Ronnie and Selby

you need to be a mental giant to have an insane head to head record against those 2 like that

So, basically, you're going to give me 100 Brazillian dollars? Yes, we are on.
