Ricky´s tactically sound player. Which isn´t the case with many top-16 players. That´s one reason I hope Ricky will make it. Obviously top-16 break-building wise is almost as strong as it can just possible be. Let´s take Ding for example. He even isn´t mentally strong. I know that because I am mentally strong myself.
But how Ding still can take one, any, shot with a 100% concentration, AND that he hardly misses the cue ball control.
That´s just bizarre.
How he can create such a total-snooker atmosphere and situation.
It is a very tiring to watch his matches. Not to even mention when you need to be out there trying to match him. But even that doesn´t mean he would win every match or tournament. Everyone will have their off-days and bogeymens. You really can´t take seriously everything the top-player talks because they have their fantasies to win tournaments on the trot. Which is hardly going to happen. These aims with the rankings are realistic goals and stuff. That´s why I will much rather comment on these topics. Than some day-dreaming to win almost everything. Forgetting there are other as good players out there also.
