I think it would have been more interesting if Ronnie and Mark played before Robbo and Ding. Robbo is absolutely gunning for a final with Ronnie, he's made that clear. If Ronnie and Selby were to have played first and Ronnie were to have won, I think Robbo would be on a warpath to make sure he got through.

Regardless, cracking quarters. Looking forward.

I thought the '1pm' might have just been a placeholder time, meaning that Ronnie v Mark would be happening after Robbo v Ding had finished. The only other thing it could mean is that Ronnie v Mark is on another table.

3 Ding Junhui 11 wins 3 runner up
4 Ronnie O'Sullivan 9 wins 6 runner up

Only just got in, what a surprise Judd losses in his first test of the tournament.

I think if Ronnie's long potting is alright he'll beat Selby, he hasn't looked like missing when he's in the balls this week.

Ding has made it to a quarter final in a ranking event! :happy: :bowdown:

I can't tell you how happy I am to see Ding back at the business end. Such a talent and a lovely warm guy. It appears his work with Terry is kicking in. So excited for this weekend.

It's a disgrace to think that Ben would only get his first televised match of the tournament in the semi final.

Just listened to Snooker Scene's podcast with Mark Selby, him feeling that beating Ronnie in the World's earned his respect. Ronnie has made it clear in interviews since then that he thinks Mark is the best player on the tour right now. Mutual respect. <ok>

I think Ronnie will win. He's in much better form than Selby.
