From Ding Junhui participate in career began, he and Selby has puzzled of fate, 2002 in Shanghai held of China open, Ding Junhui holding outside card entries, this is Ding Junhui first times appeared world career Republika Connaught grams ranking game, he of opponents just is from qualification game breakout of Mark-Selby, and in past of 2016 years II people more is three times in ranking game final in the met, Ding Junhui 1 WINS 2 negative, worth a problem last World Championships final, Selby in final in the 18-14 beat Ding Junhui 2nd times holding up World Championships champion trophy, into 2017 zhihou, two people of trend almost completely similar, Qian 2 months II people performance some bad, all game are is early out and ended, into March zhihou II people State began has has upgrade, Ding Junhui in players Championship and China game made 1 times 4 strong and 1 times 8 strong of results, and Selby is in Beijing won personal 11th a ranking game champion, ahead of lock has year-end world first. Before this year’s World Championships and the two men continued to exploit the advantages of smooth realignment with the semi-finals.
In Kasai Qian, Ding Junhui compared Selby has a potential of race advantage, China Dragon in playing finished 2nd round game Hou has valuable 2 days rest time, zhihou only into 1/4 final, and Selby is will faced from times round up to final continuous 10 days do game of test, more alone in 8 strong war in race arrangements Shang, Selby theory Shang also to than Ding Junhui late end, however reality is some different, Selby this World Championships State continued higher, from first round to 8 strong war, World first won almost all at minimal cost, three games for Leicester clowns lost only 11 games in total, Searle is in the top 8 in Ding Junhui ended the game early, because he only uses two stages to beat Marco Fu, while three games before Ding Junhui and Liang wenbo up one station lost 12 balls.
