The forecast for Jimmy Robertson - Zhao Jianbo. On Thursday, April 8, 2021, the matches of the 1/4 qualification of the World Snooker Championship will be held in Sheffield. We invite you to read our forecast for the first face-to-face confrontation between Englishman Jim and Robertson and Chinese Zhao Jianbo.
The current form of the 34 – year-old Englishman is ambiguous-in 2021, he lost 6 of the 12 matches played, and he was inferior not only to representatives of the Top 50, but also to snooker players from the second hundred of the rating. Robertson's instability is particularly acute in long matches – up to 5 or 6 wins.
Chao Jianbo is a young talent from China. The guy is only 17 years old, and he is already one step away from entering the Top 100 of the world ranking. Despite his youth, he is very cool-headed and can rattle the nerves of any opponent. In February, at the tournament in Wales, Chao took 2 frames in the confrontation with Trump (No. 1 in the world ranking), and in March, at the tournament in Gibraltar, he confidently beat Saengham and McManus – respectively No. 39 and No. 57 in the world ranking.
