  1. I think the young lad had given up after losing 5 games in a row from 3-1 up in the second. I don't know how Nadal managed to play with a numbed foot for the whole tournament and if he will try again for a third slam this year at Wimbledon. It's going to be less meaningful though with all the political nonsense surrounding it, politics and sport should be kept separate!
  2. Looks like we missed a trick there, also a bit cocky of him to have all his merch ready to roll the next day!
  3. Ronnie snr. turning up wearing shorts was a bit comical, he seems like an eccentric character!
  4. I was surprised at how focused he was in every match, if he can keep his head in the game like that he is a threat in every tournament. The decline of the class of '92 can't be too far away though, surely they can't keep it up when they're 50?!
  5. Great tournament, Ronnie was awesome, wish I'd had some of the 6/1 or 7/1 at the start but hindsight's a wonderful thing! 18-13 was closer than we could have hoped for when it was 12-5, hope he goes on to win an eighth one soon. Shame he didn't quite get to 16 or 17 centuries for the tournie as he sure had a few chances to.
  6. Ronnie has steadied the ship again, I'm surprised that the two of them are still using Triangle chalk - seen more bad contacts in this match then you would with the new Taom chalk, they can certainly afford it:-)
  7. Another 6-2 and it would get interesting tonight!
  8. It's going to be a tense evening, anyone else fancy Trump to win now? I've got a feeling that the pressure might get to Ronnie tonight - I almost make Judd favourite now as crazy as that sounds!
  9. I also wish I'd bet on the 17-10/11/12 I thought Ronnie would win by:-)
  10. Well that was tense, I didn't think it would be that close! Shame I didn't get the result I wanted but looking forward to a great final:-)
  11. Mark played really well though and could have possibly got to 11-12 so may even have leveled at 12-12! Judd made 2 centuries in the frames he won but you can't do much when you're stuck in your seat most of the time. All to play for tomorrow, will John rally to make it a close finish too? I'm on a Mark/Ronnie double so I hope not:-)
  12. Looking old and tired today, just run out of steam. If Judd keeps ticking along he's safely through to the final.
  13. Judd's twitter post: Iv ended up stuck in the middle of a world seniors championship
  14. Pity young Jack couldn't quite get the job done but that's what Higgins does best! Still reckon Ronnie can beat him 17-10/11/12. Reckon the other semi will be closer, we'll see:-) Whoever the finalists are I won't be disappointed. (Mark and Ronnie deserve it most though) Class of '92 forever and all that. Could also be the last time any of the 3 make the one table set-up!
  15. From 8-5 up that outcome was impossible yet it happened! All down to the missed black in frame 14. Judd cues a lot better and straighter with his opposite hand, knocked in a cracking yellow and brown the other day and a cut black to win the match tonight.
  16. Bad old Jack returns today, he should have won the session 5-3, good news for your Higgins bet though. Betting on centuries has been a nice little sideline this tournie though there have been fewer than expected so far in the quarters.
  17. I would probably happily take that as a final?
  18. Delighted he's finally won a big match against the tournament fave. Hope he can keep it going against John. I'm rooting for a Mark/Ronnie final but would be magic to have Judd vs Jack however fantastical that idea might be! We'll probably end up with a Yan/Maguire final?
  19. Wish I'd bet on a 147 being made after I flagged it up previously, everyone was going for them and the tables were playing looser than usual. Even the lowest ranked player left, Noppon got 14 reds/blacks this morning.
  20. I was liking the new Jack ver. 2.0 but then old Jack came back as expected! What a miss on that black, fully expect him to roll over and capitulate once again.
  21. Evening play just starting now, I would love Jack to win but I'm not sure he can keep his head together despite having Ebdon as his coach. I think Neil wins 13-11. Remember he beat Higgins from 9-4 down recently!
  22. Ooh, you're a lucky chap, Ballrun could have been 10-6 up but it's nicely balanced at 8-8. Shame Kyren bottled the 147 attempt, I think someone might hit one this year, pockets are playing fairly generously.
  23. John looking very sharp, he's going to kill this match off tonight probably 11-5 overnight.
  24. Judd's done well to be 10-6 up, Ant has probably blown his big chance of another good run. Jack might rue not being 10-6 up too, he probably would lose from there anyway as his head just can't cope when it gets near the finishing line. Robbo still wins this one for me! Kyren was shocking this morning but only 2 frames adrift. Noppon not scoring but lucked his way to a 4-4 session.
  25. You were lucky with the Yan handicap as Selby should have won at least another frame or two! Tomorrow's match could go either way but good luck with the -2.5!
