Now we’re down to the semi-finals of the 888.com World Championship, let’s look back at my tips for the last four.
I went for:
Ding Junhui v Mark Williams
Shaun Murphy v Neil Robertson
Still, I’d be amazed if anyone tipped Ali Carter v Joe Perry.
Carter reminds me a little of Joe Johnson, who found inspiration in 1986 to play some remarkable snooker and go all the way to the title.
Everyone seems to be saying that the winner of the O’Sullivan-Hendry semi will land the title.
Carter, though, is growing in confidence and could yet pull off what would be a huge upset.
