It’s fair to say that Ronnie is probably facing a very difficult first match, with Neil Robertson likely to beat the wildcard. It’s probably the hardest opponent he could have got, considering that the top 8 are seeded… just as well that he’s the defending champion.

If he defends this title, having not played competitively this season, it will be some feat.

    • Sure seems that way sometimes. For one thing, Ronnie’s almost always in the same side of the draw as John Higgins.

      In order to successfully defend his Shanghai title, there’s a decent chance that Ronnie would have to defeat 4 world champions (Robertson, Murphy, Higgins, and Selby/Williams).
