How do you think the match will pan out GJ?

Fu has probably had the best season of his career, but he too can be very inconsistent with his best/worst game. Although he made a great recovery in the 1st round, no disrespect to Fu but he didnt convince me that much, it was more down to Luca going for everything and starting to bottle it.

I think Robbo can expose Fu's weaknesses in this match. If Fu doesnt start well Robbo certainly wont allow him back in it.

I think it will be a close one tbh , but its very much 50/50 and no clear adv for either.

Yes I think both morning matches will be great to watch. Fu v Robbo certainly will, and Hawkins v Dotty also has potencial to be a good match because it's 2 Crucible specialists battling it out. Dotty is a diferent animal here, had a rubbish season, but comes here as if nothing happened, which is credit to his tenacity.

I'm still hoping Xiao can mak things a bit more interesting. Not fussed with Mags v Rory, from the few frames I've seen from them, it was rubbish most of it and just felt dull watching them.

This is more down to Rory than Mags, because had Mags faced Trump, this would have been a great encounter.

Amazing that Ding (if you discount 2 PL wins) has only managed to beat Ronnie a single time: at the 2006 NI Open Final.

So in effect Ding only has one win against Ronnie.

But I suppose it's better than ALi Carter will ever have lol...
