Ronnie O'Sullivan – Neil Robertson Match Prediction | 14-09-2019 02:00

Robertson won the 2012 Masters by defeating Shaun Murphy 106 in the final. He beat Mark Allen and Mark Williams in the opening two rounds, before facing Trump in the semi-finals for the second successive major tournament.[33] He exacted revenge for his defeat in York a month earlier by winning 63 and said after the match that he had been spurred on by fans cheering when Trump fluked shots.[34] Such was Robertson's feeling that he lacked support from the local crowd, he offered to buy a pint of beer for anyone attending his matches in an Australian hat or shirt,[35] but only one person heeded this call in his semi final match against Mark Williams. In his first Masters final he opened up a 53 lead over Murphy in the first session and, although he lost the first frame upon the resumption of play, won four frames in a row to stand on the edge of the title.

However, the 2019/20 season will be his biggest test yet, as first time champions dont always play to the same level during the following season. Judd Trump After his dazzling display in winning the world title, there is no reason why Trump shouldnt go from strength to strength. Saying that I feel that If Judd can keep his feet on the ground, he can establish himself as the man to beat all the season and beyond.

Its also true that first time world champions often struggle with the added weight of expectation and scrutiny but there are so many tournaments now and a lot of trophies to play for. You could argue some of the pressure is off him now hes triumphed at the Crucible. Hes not yet 30 and has done the triple crown and is now in the perfect position to push on and start winning more titles. Its crazy to think how some people had written him off. Judd Trump Judd was my choice last year (just saying) and he goes into this season with the final piece of the jigsaw: the world title. If he keeps his focus he will win plenty more.

In October 2009, Robertson clinched the 2009 Grand Prix trophy in Glasgow with a 94 win over China's Ding Junhui in the final. His semi-final match with defending champion John Higgins was won on the final black of the deciding frame.

There he defeated 2006 champion Graeme Dott 1813 to become only the third player from outside the UK (and only the second from outside the UK and Ireland), and the first Australian, to become world champion in the modern era of the game.[16] The win took him to a career-high ranking of No. In his second round match against Martin Gould Robertson trailed 06 and 511 before recovering to win the match 1312. He faced Ali Carter in the semi-finals, winning 1712 to reach the final. At the 2010 World Championship, Robertson defeated Fergal O'Brien 105 in the first round. In the quarter-finals he defeated Steve Davis 135. 2 in the following season.

The match will be played in best of 11 frames. Ronnie is the best player ever and has huge talent, but he has not played since the world championship, which is almost 5 months ago. Yi Zhang made a huge upset as he managed to beat Ali Carter in the first match by 6-3. Ronnie O'Sullivan will face yi zhang at the shanghai masters in snooker tomorrow. snooker is big in china and there is a lot of talented players with a huge potential. it was a really great surprise by the unknown player from china.

Judd Trump It is hard to see past Trump. Should be targeting being a multiple World Champion in his career, and no better time to begin that quest. Having finally got the monkey off his back by winning the world title predicted for him since almost before he could walk, The Juddernaut will Im sure be focusing even more on winning and peaking for the big ones this season.

Things havent quite worked out that way for the Scot despite once claiming that it would be a failure if he didnt etch his name on the trophy before the age of 30. That said, the five-time ranking event winner has produced a relatively consistent season and will be hoping to improve on a dismal recent Crucible record that reads six first round defeats in the last eight years. Tians next opponent will be Stephen Maguire, who was once thought of as a nailed on world champion. Now 38, Maguire often acts like a player who doesnt really have much belief in his game. Other qualifiers gained more headlines but one of the most impressive of the lot was Tian Pengfei. To seal his debut at the Crucible, the 31 year-old overcame Soheil Vahedi before standout successes over world number 17 Ryan Day and two-time former finalist Matthew Stevens.

It was a real battle against Ryan Day to get to Riga, then he won a high quality match against Noppon Saengkham in the International Championship. Louis Heathcote He has already impressed in the qualifiers by coming through two very different matches. Some good amateurs struggle to make the transition, but hes off to a flying start and looks set for a very strong first season.

Personal life[edit]

To some critics out there, the Chinese players are often unfairly being labeled as failures and underachievers, which is somewhat hilarious considering the majority of them are either teenagers or in their early twenties. The 2009 semi-finalist will be hoping that the advantage to all that will be a fresh outlook ahead of the sports most vigurous examination. Still, while Zhou should represent a decent workout for Allen, its hard to look past the 33 year-old in terms of reaching the last 16 on this occasion. Allen skipped the China Open, an unusual decision that cost him his spot in an easier looking top half of the draw. Zhou is one of the leading protagonists in the huge pack of young Chinese stars that are emerging. Another mouthwatering prospect in this bracket of the 2019 World Snooker Championship draw is the match between Mark Allen and Zhou Yuelong. The Northern Irishman has been one of the players of the season, although things have gone a touch quiet since he captured a brace of ranking titles and reached the UK Championship final at the end of the calendar year.

Judd Trump Difficult one this as whoever wins the world title (500k first prize) has a strong chance ending up at the top of the world rankings. If Judd Trump can defy the Crucible Curse then surely his points tally would be vastly superior to anyone else, almost irrespective of what the others win in the build up to Sheffield.
