TRUMP NAMED PLAYER OF THE YEAR

[url=https://wst.tv/trump-named-player-of-the-year-2/]https://wst.tv/trump-named-player-of-the-year-2/[/url]

Judd Trump has been named snooker’s Player of the Year after a record breaking performance across the 2019/20 season.

Trump became the first player to win six ranking titles in a single season, lifting the trophy at the World Open, International Championship, Northern Ireland Open, German Masters, Players Championship and Gibraltar Open.

The 31-year-old also built a huge lead at the top of the world rankings and became the second player to make 100 century breaks in a season.

He receives the main Player of the Year award, voted by a panel of experts, for a second consecutive year.

Trump was also voted Snooker Journalists’ Player of the Year by media around the world who cover snooker. And he won the Fans’ Player of the Year, voted by fans on the WST App and on social media platforms in China.

Ronnie O’Sullivan took the Performance of the Year award for winning the World Championship for the sixth time. The Rocket beat Kyren Wilson 18-8 in last weekend’s final at the Crucible.

Magic Moment of the Year went to John Higgins for his 147 during the second round of the World Championship, becoming the first player to make a maximum at the Crucible since 2012.

Leicester’s Louis Heathcote won Rookie of the Year following an excellent debut season which was highlighted by a run to the final qualifying round of the World Championship and a jump to 82nd in the rankings.

[url=https://wst.tv/trump-beats-lisowski-to-win-20th-ranking-title/]https://wst.tv/trump-beats-lisowski-to-win-20th-ranking-title/[/url]

Judd Trump, snooker’s most powerful force, finished 2020 in perfect fashion by beating Jack Lisowski 10-7 in the final of the matchroom World Grand Prix.

Trump becomes the sixth player in snooker history to win 20 ranking titles, joining Ronnie O’Sullivan (37), Stephen Hendry (36), John Higgins (30), Steve Davis (28) and Mark Williams (22).

Just two weeks ago, Trump suffered a painful 10-9 defeat against Neil Robertson in the final of the Betway UK Championship. Undeterred, he has bounced back in the perfect fashion by adding to an incredible winning streak which has seen him lift 13 trophies over the past 25 months.

Bristol’s 31-year-old Trump was playing against a close friend today, and was pushed hard as Lisowski showcased his own talent with a fantastic fight-back in the concluding session. But Trump’s self-belief under pressure is beyond doubt and he closed out the tournament to win his sixth ranking title of 2020.

The £100,000 top prize extends his vast lead at the top of the world rankings. He has three ranking titles under his belt already this season and has now won the World Grand Prix in 2015, 2019 and 2020.

Trump will enjoy a well earned rest over Christmas having won 24 of his last 26 matches over a 41-day spell. So impressive is his form and confidence that it is easy to see him achieving a similar level of success in 2021.

Gloucestershire’s 29-year-old Lisowski is still waiting for his first professional title, having now lost four ranking finals. The £40,000 runner-up prize lifts him one place up the ranking list to 14th. And the gifted left-hander can take pride in the way he put Trump on the ropes for much of the final session.

Trailing 6-2 after the first session, Lisowski could have taken the opening frame tonight, but ran out of position on a break of 53. When he missed a long red, Trump pounced with a 66 clearance to extend his lead.

Undeterred, Lisowski stormed back with breaks of 99, 122, 87 and 95 to close to 7-6. In frame 14, Lisowski led 53-5 when he missed a tricky red to a top corner, and Trump regained the initiative with a brilliant 57 clearance.

Lisowski made a 53 in frame 15 as he closed the gap again. Early in the 16th, Trump trapped his opponent in a tough snooker behind the green, and from the chance that followed he made a superb 78 to go 9-7 ahead.

Leading 61-0 in frame 17, Lisowski missed a tricky red to a top corner, and Trump replied with 39 before running out of position on the last red. A safety exchange went Trump’s way, and he coolly cleared the table for victory.

“It was an extremely good game, Jack made it very hard for me,” said Trump. “He played some of the best snooker I have ever seen, everything he looked at was going in. I had to make a couple of really good clearances. The clearance to go 8-6 was massive because I didn’t want him to get back level.

“I had to stay patient tonight and capitalise on the tiny mistakes he made. I’m proud of the way I held myself together and barely missed a ball. That shows the level I had to play to because I still lost the session 5-4. If he keeps playing like that I have no doubt he will be in the top five in the world in no time.

“This is the best start I have ever made to a season and there isn’t much I can improve on. I just have to keep trying to play to this level, keep up the hunger, the ambition and the enjoyment, then hopefully more success will come. When you are number one in the world you have to keep practising because everyone is chasing you, so you can’t let up. The only way to stay on top is to practise harder than everyone else.”

Lisowski said: “I upped my game tonight and put him under pressure, I was on a roll. But I lost a couple of frames from 50 or 60 ahead. The clearance he made to go 8-6 was ridiculous. I’m please to have pushed the best player in the world and made him work for it. It has been an amazing week and my game is going in the right direction.”

賈德·特魯姆普 10-7 杰克·利索夫斯基
2020/21斯諾克世界大獎賽冠軍

這場決賽最終成為了一場極其精彩的比賽,杰克(利索夫斯基)給我制造了不少麻煩,我覺得他打出了我見過最棒的表現。打到最后他的所有拼球都進了,這給我帶來了很大的壓力。

我打出了兩次非常關鍵的清台,還有最后一局,我也是在殘局階段憑藉一次相當好的單杆拿下。比賽打到最后真是超級艱難,但同時又非常值得享受。我覺得我們在比賽中都打出了相當高的水準。

今天下午我打得非常扎實,並不是‘精彩異常’但在所有的方面都相當不錯。今晚從我的第一次失誤開始,他甚至並非所有長台進攻都是‘連攻帶守’,而是全力以赴地去拼——而每顆都拼進了!我真的沒什么可做的,只能保持耐心;他的小錯誤我也要抓住。最后能集中精力打完,我倍感自豪。

我覺得自己不會失誤。說老實話,如果我覺得自己要打丟,那么比賽的任何一刻我都有可能輸掉。我必須一直打進、一直清台、一直圍球得分,我想不起來在整個晚場有打丟過哪一顆——即便如此(最后8局)我還是3比5落入下風。要是他能一直打出這樣的水準,毫無疑問很快他就會躋身世界前四、前五的行列。

(第14局)是一個很重要的轉折點,在比賽的任何時候你都不想讓對手追平。有兩局領先的優勢作為緩衝很重要,而即便如此我開球后他還是能一杆制勝。不能讓他追到平局,而作為世界第一就更要做到在對手表現強勢時努力讓他無法上手。

我沒法給自己設定什么目標,因為我很難復制上個賽季的成績。能拿到兩項賽事的冠軍我就很滿意,而本賽季的開始可以說是我職業生涯的最佳開局。我必須要保持現在的水準,保持‘野心’和‘求勝欲’,並且享受其中。希望能迎來更多的成功。

當你成為世界第一,你知道所有人都將你作為目標來追趕。我覺得大家都會在聖誕節期間放個假,鑑於今年發生的一切我覺得休個假很重要,明年再來更努力地訓練,努力進步。

Judd Trump: An Underrated Champion?

[url=https://wpbsa.com/judd-trump-an-underrated-champion/]https://wpbsa.com/judd-trump-an-underrated-champion/[/url]

Victory for Judd Trump at the World Grand Prix last weekend represented his third ranking title success of the 2020/21 season to date and the sixth of what has been a record-breaking year for the world number one.

But following his win against Stuart Bingham at the last 16 stage of the tournament, Trump suggested that his achievements during the first half of this campaign had not received the coverage that they have merited:

“I don’t know anyone who has ever had a start to a season like I have and not really much gets mentioned,” said Trump. “If it was someone else, it would be a lot more publicised.

“For me, I’m very proud of how I’ve started the season and a lot of the top players probably outside of the top four would take the season I’ve had already. And I’ve still got a handful of events left this season.

“It’s been an incredible season so far and I’m just trying to live up to the standards I set in the last couple of years. At the moment, I’m doing that.”

Does he have a point? Our own Matt Huart considers how Trump has been able to translate his prodigious talent to tour domination and just how his achievements measure up against the great champions of our sport past and present…

THE BACKGROUND

A prolific winner at junior level, Trump first turned professional as a 16-year-old in 2005, but despite success in events such as the Championship League and Masters qualifying tournaments, it was not until 2011 that he would truly announce himself as an elite player on the World Snooker Tour.

Ranking titles at that year’s China Open and UK Championship, either side of a memorable run to the World Championship final at the Crucible Theatre, heralded the arrival of a new star on the baize. It was not only the silverware, but the swashbuckling style of play – later dubbed ‘naughty snooker’ – that felt like such a breath of fresh air at the turn of the decade.

He would remain a consistent winner, adding a further six ranking titles and remaining firmly ranked inside of the world’s top eight. Since the start of the 2008/9 season, he has still never finished lower than sixth on the list of century break makers per season and has topped the list on four occasions.

But with expectations high and a maiden world title continuing to elude him, accusations of underachievement, coupled with the rise of countryman Kyren Wilson, who notably defeated Trump on four occasions in 2018, led some to doubt whether the Bristolian would be able to truly fulfil his undoubted potential at the highest level.

WHAT CHANGED?

At the start of the 2018/19 season, Trump sought the help of his younger brother Jack to travel on tour and work with him on the practice table. The decision would prove to be a masterstroke, with Jack handed the responsibility of devising routines to sharpen Judd’s all-round game, as well as satisfy his insatiable desire to pot balls.

Undoubtedly a key factor in what has followed since, this also followed Trump’s decision a year prior to undergo laser eye surgery for a condition that unbeknownst to many, had dogged him for much of his professional career. Trump has also credited this as being a major factor in his subsequent success.

Following a title drought stretching back over a year, the stars aligned for Trump at the 2018 Northern Ireland Open in Belfast. His 9-7 final victory against Ronnie O’Sullivan that November is now often cited as a key turning point in his career and indeed Trump’s own quotes post-match now seem prescient given what would follow:

“I think that’s my best win. After the year I’ve had and the criticism from other people, it feels nice to go out there and play like that. It’s nice to shut them up for a bit.

“Everyone was in the tournament, I had no easy draws and to beat Ronnie in the final is extra special.

“I’ve been feeling very sharp and this week it all came together. Hopefully this can give me the confidence to carry on.”

And carry on Trump would. Two months later he would win the invitational Masters event for the first time with an emphatic 10-4 triumph against O’Sullivan, before rounding off the season by claiming his elusive first world title with an 18-9 triumph against old foe John Higgins.

While representing the fulfilment of a lifelong dream, his Crucible success would prove to be the tip of the ranking event iceberg.

TRUMP’S ACHIEVEMENTS

Little over two years on from claiming his ninth ranking crown in Belfast, Trump now stands on 20 behind only Ronnie O’Sullivan, Stephen Hendry, John Higgins, Steve Davis and Mark Williams – each of whom would rank highly among any list of all-time greats.

Now is not the time, nor the article to consider Trump’s place in snooker’s pantheon of greats, for he in all likelihood has many years ahead of him to add to his ultimate trophy haul. But we can consider in isolation his “incredible” start to the season and see how the package of work that he has built over the past two years stands up when measured against the very best.

THE SEASON START

From the opening seven ranking events of the 2020/21 season, Trump has claimed three titles, while reaching a further two finals and one semi-final.

This marks the 11th time that a player has enjoyed such a strike rate, Trump himself having also done so last season, though not enjoying the same level of consistency in the tournaments that he did not win.

There are three instances of players earning more than three titles from such a period, most notably Stephen Hendry’s unparalleled run of five titles and one final from the first seven events of the 1990/91 campaign, while Steve Davis claimed four during 1987/88.

More recently, Ding Junhui claimed four titles from seven during the 2013/14 season, a feat made all the more impressive by the fact that he won an incredible three consecutive crowns during the autumn, becoming the first player since Hendry to do so.

THE CALENDAR YEAR

Trump’s triumph at the World Grand Prix marked a record sixth ranking event win of 2020, eclipsing the previous best of five set by Stephen Hendry in 1990 and himself in 2019.

A further four players – Steve Davis, Mark Selby, Ding Junhui and Jimmy White – have been able to secure four ranking crowns during a single calendar year, while five (including each of the ‘Class of 92’) have won three.

silentbill 2020-12-30 02:35

.........

BACK-TO-BACK

It is arguably when the counting period is extended to 24 months that the extent of Trump’s consistency becomes even clearer, with his haul of 11 ranking titles comfortably standing alone over a two-year period.

His closest rivals in this league table are Stephen Hendry (1989-90) and Steve Davis (1987-88), who each earned up to eight crowns during their best two-year period, while Mark Selby won seven from 2015-16.

Trump has also contested 12 of the last 25 ranking event finals held, dating back to his 2019 Crucible triumph.

IS TRUMP UNDERESTIMATED?

And so, to the burning question – does Trump receive the recognition that his achievements over the past two years have merited?

To the ‘outside world’ it is Ronnie O’Sullivan, who has been the flag bearer for the sport for a generation has dominated the headlines and having claimed his sixth world title back in August continues to do so. There have been few snooker players in the modern era who have been able to transcend the sport and attract interest from people outside of the “snooker bubble” quite like O’Sullivan has and regardless of Trump’s current success this continues to be the case.

Within the snooker community, whether it be players, media or fans however, there are few who do not recognise the quality and the appeal of his brand of snooker brings to the table. While he has long since moved on from the ‘naughty snooker’ tag that arguably would come to haunt him for a number of years, he remains capable of producing shots that no other player can conjure, particularly within a high-pressure “live” frame of snooker.

Are there any valid arguments for Trump’s success not being as impressive as the numbers suggest? Below I tackle a couple of the most common cases against him that I have seen stated on social media in recent weeks…

“THERE ARE MORE EVENTS NOW”

It is no secret that the past decade has seen a significant increase in the volume of ranking events staged, providing greater opportunity for players to amass the numbers that Trump has.

Stephen Hendry’s strike rate of five titles and one final from eight tournaments in 1990 remains the benchmark, while Ding Junhui claimed four from 12 in 2013. By comparison, Trump’s six this year have come from 16 tournaments, during which he has reached a further two finals.

While a greater number of events held have undoubtedly given the current generation of players more opportunities to win, there is also an argument to say that the strength of opposition relative to 30 years ago has increased significantly and made consistent success more difficult to achieve.

How the standard at the very top of the game compares to the Davis and Hendry years is open to debate, but with regards to the strength in depth on tour and the standard in the early rounds of competitions, few would argue that this not increased exponentially in recent years.

“HE HASN’T WON ENOUGH TRIPLE CROWN EVENTS”

To date Trump has won three of snooker’s ‘Triple Crown’ events during his career, most recently the Masters and World Championship crowns in 2019. With fewer wins at these events and the UK Championship, than the calibre of player that he is measured against, combined with not having added to his tally this year, does this detract from Trump’s success?

Of course, these three events carry the longest history in our sport and so are a unique benchmark upon which all of the greats from Davis to Trump can be measured at least somewhat equally.

However, it should also be acknowledged that in the modern game there are other significant tournaments, with formats and prize money totals at least comparable to the big three. His victories at the International Championship in 2012 and 2019 for example were played under similar formats to the UK Championship, while victories at events such as the Players Championship were won under formats not unlike the Masters.

While these events might not have the history of the Triple Crown events, this does not mean that they are easier to win.

And if we are to put aside any arguments as to the value of these events, it remains the case that Trump has nevertheless won more Triple Crown events than any other player since the start of 2019 with two victories, coming within a couple of pots of making it three at the UK Championship earlier this month.

It is true to say that Trump has fewer of these wins during his career so far than the all-time greats and that at the end of his career, his number of Triple Crown – and in particular World Championship titles will be something upon which his achievements are judged.

But when looking at his achievements so far this season and over the past two seasons, it is difficult to argue that his performances in these events have significantly detracted from his feats.

THE VERDICT

It is never easy to compare athletes from different eras across any sport and snooker is no different, with both the structure of the tour, playing conditions and the depth of standard having changed significantly as snooker has evolved over its long history.

What can be said is that by any objective measure, what he has achieved during the past two years has been at the very least hugely impressive. Whether Trump has received the credit he is due for this perhaps depends on what you read, but if not, perhaps it is previous perceptions of underachievement have proved hard to look past in the eyes of some on the periphery of our sport, as he has evolved into the sport’s top ranked player.

Regardless, as still the fourth youngest player ranked inside of the world’s top 16, if he can maintain his current winning brand of snooker then no doubt people will be speaking of his achievements for many years still to come.
