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

Robertson started 2013 by attempting to defend his Masters title.

However Im going to go for another player who also reached two ranking finals in the last campaign. He almost made it in Yushan and Berlin, and didnt do a great deal wrong in either final to end up losing, so his time may not be long in coming now. Dave Gilbert had already moved up to a whole new level last season even before his feats in Sheffield. David Gilbert Last year I went for Jack Lisowski and although he didnt quite get it done, I still think it may well happen soon.

Robertson has a son, Alexander, with his Norwegian fianc, Mille Fjelldal, [105] whom he met in 2008.

Ding Junhui vs Anthony McGill

Robertson beat Shaun Murphy on the final black in the quarter-finals of the 2014 Wuxi Classic to win 54 and then beat Barry Hawkins 63 to reach the opening ranking event final of the 2014/2015 season.[73][74] He played friend and practice partner Joe Perry and from 30 behind rallied to lead 86, before Perry won three frames in a row to be one away from the title.

He defeated Stephen Hendry 53, making a break of 141 in the last frame, then recovered from 43 down to beat Ronnie O'Sullivan 54 in the quarter-finals. He led 62 after the first session, then dropped six frames in a row to come within one frame of defeat, but took the remaining three frames to win the match. Robertson had early exits in both the UK Championship and the Masters, but found his form again en route to the final of the Welsh Open. He beat Steve Davis 63 in the semi-finals, and surprise finalist Andrew Higginson 98 in the final to take the title.

Judd Trump is at the top of the very early End of season rankings by more than 200000, so hes clearly favourite at this stage. A lot will depend on how well or not Judd copes with his World Champion status and with the Curse. Neil Robertson is second in the list. It will very likely be one of them. Who?

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.

Ill go with Lisowski he is knocking on the door, and his time is surely coming. Jack Lisowski Especially in the shorter formats there is always the chance of someone enjoying a spectacular week and coming from nowhere. But the main contenders should be David Gilbert, Jack Lisowski, and the Chinese youngsters (Yan Bingtao, Zhao Xintong, Zhou Yuelong, Lyu Haotian and Yuan Sijun).

In January 2014, during the Championship League, Robertson reached 63 century breaks in a single professional season, breaking the previous record of 61 centuries held by Judd Trump.[63] By early February, Robertson had reached 78 centuries, a feat that Ronnie O'Sullivan called "probably the most phenomenal scoring in the history of the game."[64] In February, he made his 88th century of the season while playing Mark Williams in the last 32 of the Welsh Open, but went on to lose 43.[65]At the World Open, he extended his season total to 92 centuries, but lost 43 on a re-spotted black against Marco Fu in the last 32.[66] At the China Open he won a trio of deciding frames before beating Graeme Dott and Ali Carter to reach the final, where he lost 105 to Ding Junhui.[58][67]He added one more century break during the event and extended the total to 99 in his first two World Championship matches. Robertson also missed a black on a break of 94 that would have seen him reach the 100 milestone during his win over Mark Allen.[68] However, in the 22nd frame of his quarter-final clash against Judd Trump, Robertson made his 100th century break of the season, which also levelled the scores at 1111.
