I think the fact that it’s a 2 year ranking system (as opposed to Tennis which is 1 year) as well as the Masters being an invitational event and hence offering no ranking points means that players that have been fairly average for one season can still be quite high if the previous season was successful.

Williams won 3 events last season including the Worlds. I do agree though that the rankings don’t seem to reflect who the best players are.

thought murphy might of been in the top 5 then again think you're right 2 of the tournaments he's won have been non ranking

Drunken, for all his talent he should be yes, Ronnie won the UK at 17, Hendry the worlds at 21, John Higgins World champ at 23, class of 1992 were all 18-19 when they came through...

Yes, agreed

Apologies to all Judd fans but some of the comments are pure sensationalist fantasies.

It has happened so often before, according to bbc Steve Davis was lauded so much in the late 80s even though many saw he was being caught up, then Hendry became GOAT by his 3rd or 4th title, Williams was starting dominance in 2003, then suddenly Ronnie took the game to a new level in 2004, 2008 apparently, then in 2011 Higgins is the GOAT, then Ronnie became GOAT in 2013 and since and now Judd will dominate even though he won his first title at 29.

It’s not only pure exaggeration, it’s the way these guys are such turncoats, they flip flop with GOATs, best performances, best finals every other season.

However, this is the first time after a long time, that I’ve really been excited by a new champion. Can’t wait until next season. I always thought either Ding or Judd could break the Crucible Curse if they finally won it. It will be tough, but he is capable, no doubt about it.

Well said Just true, I heard all the above like you over the years,Changing the GOAT after every tournament Yet who has won most titles this season ?.......... Ronnie at 43 still going strong... I made a comment on the BBC website stating that Ronnie at 29 absolutely smashes Trump .. Ronnie at 43 is still a formidable opponent to Trump .. After all he has won 5 titles this year.. Davis & Parrott etc only comment on the BBC events, which Trump as won 2 this season, Ronnie won the other, to make it to 19 Triple Crown Events... need I go on...

No one has said that Judd Trump is the GOAT, I highly doubt he will come close to breaking Hendry and Ronnie records, But there is no question at present he is the man to beat. Yes Judd maybe could and should have achieved more at 29 but it is a lot tougher these days, he has had so much stick from plenty of people over the years which has been over the top.
We have to remember Selby won his first world title aged 30, further 2 followed. Neil Robertson won his first world title aged 28, hasn't got to a world final ever since. Judd needs to aim to surpass those 2 players first which he is more then capable of doing, I'm hoping he can win another 2 or 3 more world titles and he needs another UK championship up his sleeve too!

I've read lots of comments about Trump taking it to another level, ridiculous comment, you are right though, he is the one to beat, even if Ronnie won more last season..
