Ding Junhui – Brandon Sargeant Match Prediction | 23-09-2019 21:30

Ive heard on the grapevine from a fellow pro, that OConnor is one of the most dedicated snooker players hes ever come across. Hes got real star quality about him. His results last season as a first time pro were extremely encouraging. In some ways, he mirrors Kyren in his composure, temperament and toughness on the table.

He won his first match, lost his second then performed very well in defeat to top 16 player, Kyren Wilson losing 6-4. Hes showed enough to suggest he will be no whipping boy. Last season, the Stokie finished on the Challenge Tour ranked number one so got automatic promotion to the main tour. Brandon Sargeant is a new name to many.

I felt like I was knocking on the door, even though I lost the first couple of matches, I felt like I played well. Against Stuart it just all clicked. Jordan recently chatted to World Snooker and spoke about his start to the season: It doesnt get much harder start than that. I was kind of expecting it to.

In 56 matches last season, 39 victories yielded only three whitewashes for Ding. One of those was to Germanys Simon Lichtenberg (arguably the weakest pro on tour), where he lost five frames in a 6-5 win and Zhao Jianbo, who is only an amateur and still conceded two frames. He played 32 best of 11 and nine matches and in 27 of them conceded two frames or more. The encouragement comes from his opponent. This season, his tally reads 12 matches (nine wins) and in 11 he conceded 2+ frames.

He was thumped 6-1 in Beijing at the China Open by Sam Craigie then 10-3 by Tian Pengfei in the World Championship qualifiers. He lost to rookie pro Louis Heathcote in pre-qualifying for Riga. Since getting to the final in Gibraltar, Day has had a major slump in form. Then after very nearly losing to Jamie Clarke in International Championship qualifying (won 6-5) he was beaten by Kurt Maflin in Daqing (led 4-3, lost 6-4).
