Ronnie is looking great! What a clearance in his final frame today! Superb stuff! Hopefully Higgins wins his quarter final match!

Selby looks as the clear favourite at the moment, but I really wish for either Marco Fu or Alan McManus to make an upset at the Crucible

What a tournament! Really enjoyed it this year. Really pleased for Mark Selby. It was also great to see McManus get back to the semis! :)

I was a bit sympathetic for Ding knowing that a whole lot of 200 million people supports him in China (which is immense and can bring Snooker to new heights)

Ding done so well to stay with Selby and he made a real fight of it. Ding still has plenty of years left to win it

Yeah massive season of Snooker ahead. 18 or 19 ranking tournaments which is great for Snooker fans.
There is also a new ranking tournament in Scotland. The Scottish Open as part of the Home Nations Series, It'll be held this December in Glasgow! I can't wait!!

I like the fact that snooker gets greater coverage because the sport really deserves to be massive.

The game has really grown over the last 6 years since Barry Hearn took over.
Record number of viewers on Eurosport and a 10 TV deal.
Record prize money this season too.
Looking forward to this season and the next few ahead to see the game continue to grow.

That's good news. Fingers crossed he will be able to enter the Scottish Open. He has previously said he already has commitments

Shanghai Masters: Ding Junhui beats world champion Mark Selby in final

Image

Ding Junhui won the Shanghai Masters for the second time with a 10-6 victory over world champion Mark Selby.

England's Selby, 33, who beat Ding 18-14 in May's Crucible final, took a 3-1 lead before his Chinese opponent hit back, knocking in a 75 break for a 6-3 advantage going into the interval.

Back came Selby with a 76 and century before he levelled the match at 6-6.

But Ding, 29, took control once more, recording breaks of 97 and 63 en route to completing his win on home soil.

What a championship it's been. One of my favourites so far.

Selby v Ding
Hawkins v Higgins

What a semi final line up!

I don't really like Higgins.
For the world of snooker, the victory of Ding would be the ideal outcome.

Higgins has always been one of my favourite players. He used to practice at a club I used to play in. A few times I was playing on the table beside him, he once watched me pot a great yellow with the rest. I'll never forget that.

I agree a Ding win will be brilliant for world snooker. I'd be happy to see any of the 4 win really.
