nope he would. Selby was lucky he won it in 2016. Probably as bad as I've seen someone play and win the World title. He even struggled against Sam freaking Baird in the second round. In the final he benefited from playing against a very nervy Ding who lost the first six frames.
in 2017 however Selby was a different beast . just compare the standard of the 2016 final between Selby and Ding and their 2017 semi. Its like night and day. 2017 was insane quality.
