Looks like someone will really have to play out of his skin to beat him in the World Championship next year. There are 4 or 5 capable of doing it but they'll really have to be at the top of their game.
There were people on this forum who were scoffing at him for only having won one ranking event. (It was tounge in cheek scoffing, as he had also won three Masters titles.) But he really has made those scoffers look stupid now.
His style, isn't always as exciting as Ronnie's or Judd's, but you've got to respect his tenacity, effectiveness and will to win, even if he's long past frame ball being potted.
I'd love to see Ding win the World title in the next couple of years. Problem is, Selby will be incredibly difficult to beat.
