We will then see a few Ronnie fans (myself not included) cursing Ding for his display against Selby (as if Ronnie would've had a chance).


I wont be cursing Ding if he gets humiliated.

But thing is, we'll just never know will he.... Ronnie had less chances of beating Selby if they met here, but we'll just never know if he could or could not manage to beat him. Most here seem to think he couldn't, but we can't be 100% sure because it wont happen.

Selby would have preferred Ronnie. Has his number IMO. If Ding gets into the groove early it could go really close. Just have the feeling that Selby is in the form of his life and might run away...if he's really on song nobody can live with him right now. BUT would be spectacular for the game of snooker if Ding won the title especially with Hearn's new China tv deal signed. On the fence a little wish wise, but I think the winner will come from this game.

Unfortunately Selby is no Stevens who peaks in quarters and bottles it in semis or finals. So I don't think Selby will drop his level too much after the Fu match. Ding really needs to play very well to win this match.

He played well today but I think Ronnie gifted him too many easy chances. In fact Ding didnt even have to play many splits. the reds were spread all the time.

Under normal circumstances that wont be the case with Selby.
