Michael Wasley potted some great pressure balls when he best Ding here, then got hammered by Dale in the next round and has basically disappeared off the radar since.
It's easy to get carried away when a young player completes a good win.
Nobody said he will definitely become a top player, but the kid is doing very good right now. Why bring him down? What does he have to do to give him a positive comment?
"That's what you call showing your class" - me, about 5 minutes ago
I just think building him up so quickly is a little dangerous - it's already been done with Trump, Lisowski, Jones etc in recent years and not even Trump has fulfilled those claims. Why not just let players develop and progess without hanging expectations around their shoulders?
He might thrive on it and surpass them, and nothing would make me happier than for a young player to finally take the game and his potential by the scruff of the neck, believe me.
