Our Prediction:

John Higgins will win

John Higgins – Mark Williams Match Prediction | 06-09-2019 04:00

The fatigue from that marathon match may well carry over into the final and Higgins is the last man Williams would want to face in those circumstances. Both semi-finals were nip and tuck affairs, but Williams late-night 17-15 victory over Barry Hawkins was particularly gruelling, and in truth the Welshman fell over the line somewhat on Saturday night. The Scotsman has been the more consistent player throughout the two weeks and is favoured to make it five career world titles in what is likely to be another nail-biter.

Its what dreams are made of and aspirations dont come much loftier than a 2019 World Snooker Championship encounter with OSullivan. Ronnie OSullivan once again heads into the World Championship as the pre-tournament favourite, as he so often does. An incredible first round draw has paired the Rocket with James Cahill, who was the headline story of the qualifiers when he beat Michael Judge to become the first amateur to reach the Crucible in the tournaments 42-year history. Its not easy to see how he can change that statistic given the new world number ones pedigree and form. Which brings us to the last match. Cahill, still only 23 and an exciting prospect for the future, will be looking to enjoy his moment against the sports biggest star. But greater challengers surely await OSullivan in the 2019 World Snooker Championship. OSullivan has been practically unstoppable this season, reaching the title decider in seven out of the ten tournaments hes participated in, with only Trump managing to evade him in big finals. Cahill, a former professional who will regain his tour card next season, has actually played the five-time world champion three times but unsurprisingly has fallen short on each occasion. The Englishman hasnt challenged at the Crucible since 2014, though, and is often his own worst enemy as he struggles to deal with the inner demons that can affect his game, especially when the format increases over multiple sessions.

Scott Donaldson was the last player to emerge from the 2019 World Snooker Championship qualifiers late on Wednesday night after a dramatic 10-9 victory over Lu Ning. The Paul Hunter Classic and German Masters champion reached the last four twelve months ago and was eventually undone by John Higgins but, like the four-time world champion, Wilson boasts a suitable temperament for the big occasion. Kyren Wilson could be a dark horse for this years tournament as hes got all the necessary tools to do well in the 17-day Marathon of the Mind. With a taste of the single table set-up, the Kettering cueist will be desperate to make a return. The Scot has gone under the radar a touch but has actually been one of the most improved players on the circuit of late. With two semi-final and a couple of quarter-final appearances in ranking events this season, Donaldson is beginning to become more recognisable at the business end of comps. His debut berth in the World Championship shouldnt come as any great surprise then, but its difficult to envisage him going any further.

Match sharp and with a laissez-faire attitude at the twilight of his career, the 46 year-old will be a tricky challenge that an out-of-form Higgins might not have any answers for this year. Six years ago at the same hurdle, Davis knocked Higgins out courtesy of a 10-6 scoreline and in fact boasts a superior head-to-head record against the former world number one. By beating Lyu Haotian in the preliminaries, Davis became the first player to reach the venue stages via the qualifiers ten times. Higgins, with no silverware to his name and a series of disappointing early exits from tournaments to erase from his memory, has been disillusioned with the game since losing his second successive World Championship final last May. The Wizard of Wishaw will be hoping that the Crucible Theatre can inspire some of his old magic to return but in the first round of the 2019 World Snooker Championship hes been paired with an old nemesis at this stage. Arguably the worst draw that John Higgins could have received on the back of what has been his most miserable season in years.

Ding has long held the weight of a nation on his shoulders but his quest for the ultimate title has so far eluded him and its difficult to envisage that changing in 2019. A repeat of their second round clash twelve months ago when Ding Junhui thrashed Anthony McGill 13-4, the pair cross paths again in Sheffield. In the Chinese number ones favour at least is a head-to-head record against McGill that reads four and zero. Ding knows all too well how momentum can develop after reaching the final in 2016 on the back of emerging from the preliminary stages. Few were probably expecting the Scot to advance from the qualifiers but a remarkable turnaround from 7-2 behind against Robert Milkins on Judgement Day proved the doubters wrong. Both Ding and McGill will be looking to lock the memories of this season up and throw away the key, unless they can conjure up something special in the next fortnight or so. This has the makings of a scrappy contest and its hard to see either of them producing the necessary goods this year to challenge the main contenders. Its been a dire campaign for the duo and they have rarely featured at the business end of events.

Robertson has never really threatened to add to his 2010 Crucible crown but looks to be in the best form of his life heading into this edition. Neil Robertson is the man in form after a run of four consecutive ranking event finals culminated in the Australian triumphing in the lucrative China Open at the start of April. Michael Georgiou represents Robertsons initial test, the latter proudly becoming the first Cypriot to ever qualify. The former Snooker Shoot Out champion has done well to reach this stage but one suspects that hell find himself out of his depth against Robertson, particularly if the 16-time ranking event winner maintains his current hot streak. Only Ronnie OSullivan has managed to stop the Melbourne man in his tracks of late and, with the pair in opposite sides of the 2019 draw, there could be a mouthwatering rematch of their Players Championship and Tour Championship final showdowns of last month.

Lisowski has come a long way since his 13-1 humiliation at the hands of John Higgins in the second round last year, reaching two ranking event finals and breaking into the elite top 16 for the first time in his career. One possible bone of contention is that, while Carter ought to be warmed up nicely following three routine wins in qualifying, the Captain didnt actually play anyone higher in the rankings than Jimmy White at number 78. Whether hes been suitably tested or not could be an interesting factor. Undoubtedly one of the matches of the round, twice former runner-up Ali Carters reward for emerging from the qualifiers is a date with fellow Englishman Jack Lisowski. The pair has met only once before, back in 2015 when the Dude pipped Carter in a decider at the International Championship and it could very well be that close again here. Still, this affair is practically a flip of a coin. Along with the experienced Perry and Dott, Carter is probably the player most of the seeds wanted to avoid.
