The forecast for Eden Shawar - Andy Hicks. On Thursday, April 8, 2021, the matches of the 1/4 qualification of the World Snooker Championship will be held in Sheffield. We offer you a forecast for the confrontation between Shavar and Hicks.
These snooker players have already met each other in the year before last – in the 1/4 India Open, Hicks gave Shavar only 2 frames, while winning 4. Will the Israeli be able to take revenge now?
It seems that the 28-year-old representative of Israel has a higher rating (No. 74) and solid experience. But the current form of Shavar raises reasonable doubts that he will be able to overcome even the first round of the World Cup – he lost 6 of his 8 matches in March, and this despite the fact that most of his opponents were far below Eden in the rankings.
Compared to his rival, world No. 87 Andy Hicks is more stable. Yes, recently he lost, but only to rating rivals, while constantly forcing them to fight. He may not be very good at wagering, but if an opponent makes a mistake, Andy punishes him instantly. Hicks is not famous for hundreds of series per approach, but he breaks 50+ quite regularly.
