The final promises to be a decoration of the already wonderful world championship. There are several reasons. The two finalists are linked by friendship. And this is not surprising, since they have a common coach – Chris Henry. Everyone has something to fight for. Mark Selby could become a four-time world champion, and Sean Murphy claims his second championship title. The fight will be sharp. But there is no reason for antagonism. This assumes that the finalists will be relaxed enough to show off snooker of the highest standard. They have enough skill for this.
Mark Selby, from a certain period, began to be obstructed by some of the fans. Those who didn’t like the fact that Ronnie O’Sullivan had a strong competitor. And some players (the same Ronnie, for example) spoke negatively about Mark’s playing style. But Selby broke into the cohort of the strongest in a very high competition. In matches with many of the strongest players, he was forced to play number two. At the same time, for two seasons in a row, Selby was the most serial player, but it seemed to go unnoticed. Mark has managed to modernize modern snooker, giving great importance to the tactical aspect. This helped him out in those cases when he did not have game A – attacking and serial. But how good was Mark when he confused the opponent in tactical complications and gnawed victories in difficult games. Looking closely at Selby’s rational and variable (in terms of tactics) play, Ronnie O’Sullivan noted that to win tournaments you need to play like Mark Selby.

How Chris Henry managed to bring his players to the world championship in excellent shape remains a mystery. Mark Selby was pretty darn good in his first three games. In the semifinals, the game did not go well, but here the fighting nature worked, which previously allowed Mark to make comebacks and often win decisive frames. Sean Murphy did not shine at all during the season, but these days he appeared before us in a new (or forgotten old?) sight when he was strong and formidable. As many as sixteen years have passed since Sean won the World Cup. After that, he performed in the final, but could not repeat his success. In the past six years, Murphy has reached the single table stage for the first time and even the finals. Will he still have a chance to become world champion? He’s already under forty. Sean will fight furiously.
And yet I prefer Mark Selby. I think that he should have become the world champion already last year (someone will not like this phrase!). Now Mark has everything to win his fourth title.
I expect the final meeting to be very stubborn (at least 30 frames), very rich in century and fifty episodes. This explains my choice of rates.
