think it has more to do with dohertys consistency more than anything. he never seems to get beat in many first round matches and tends to take all tournaments more seriously than a lot of the other top players. he has had many semi finals and final appearances over the past few seasons and this bumps his ranking up considerably. i think this is the case because like you say portmor he hasnt won many tournaments.

Ronnie thinks the draw for the World Championship is fixed


O'Sullivan's match-up with Ding, a repeat of January's Masters final, was the stand-out tie of the draw.

Ding has soared up the world rankings in the last two seasons, and is rated among the favourites for the title in Sheffield on his Crucible debut.

 'Whoever is doing the draw is trying to stitch me up'

Ronnie O'Sullivan

O'Sullivan, who won at The Crucible in 2001 and 2004, has faced tricky opponents in his first-round matches in recent years.

He lost to Marco Fu in the opening round of the 2003 tournament, and had to beat Scotland's Stephen Maguire in 2004 and 2005.

Any of you read the piece in the Sindo about Dubliner Joe Delaney, 34-year-old former talent who slightly pissed it away in last few years but battled back somewhat and has made it to the Crucible this year?

Could be a big story waiting to happen.

Or alternatively, he could go on the lash and get mashed in the first round by Matthew Stevens. :-\

matthew stevens is a different player when he plays at the world championship what with the longer frames etc. he will easily beat delaney and he has got a good chance of winning it. even says it himself, he is terrible at shorter events but always plays well at the longer frame matches.

Graeme Dott is the world number one in the latest rankings on the back of having won the last tournament (china open).
