Makes you look at any Simon-Monfils in a new light, no?
I suppose so. I don't mind watching Ebdon because although he has that 'gentleman' image, he can be a bit of a dickhead sometimes and I quite like that sort of drama. Selby, he's too much of a goody two-shoes, has a dull style, and is a boring personality. His nickname is most inappropriate, because I've never so much as laughed while he's been playing, except when he's lost, of course.
I remember watching once Selby playing Ronnie and I was like Seinfeld Elaine: Die, die, just diiiiieeeee!
I think one of the best ever Ronnie victories was beating Selby in the Masters final in 2009 by outgrinding him. The match was over around 01.00 AM and next minute AO started, which Rafa won. The best three weeks in my sport watching life
Didn't Selby win the Masters the next year, pulling a Houdini against Ronnie? I must admit, even with my attitude towards Selby, that was mighty impressive.
I want Ronnie to come back and annihilate Selby at the World Chamionships, but I fear he's just going to come back to piss about, or not come back at all.
AO 2009 was a great tournament, one of my favourite Grand Slams. So many great matches!
