Forecast for Matthew Selt-Nigel Bond. On Saturday, April 10, 2021, the 1/2 World Snooker Championship qualification matches will take place in Sheffield. We offer you our idea of who the Celt - Bolt pair will continue to play in the World Cup.
Matthew and Bond have already played each other twice, and for Nigel, these meetings are not the best memories. In 2016, at the Welsh Open, he did not win a single frame at all (0:4), and in 2020, at the German stage of the Masters tournament, he lost 2-5.
At a recent tournament in Gibraltar, Matthew Selt reached the semifinals, where he lost 1:4 to the leader of the world ranking – Trump. By the way, on the way to the semifinals, Matthew passed such top snooker players as Hocking and Wilson. At the March stage of the WST Rro Series, Celt performed quite evenly, winning 4 matches out of 7, and in 5 confrontations he started with the first frame won.
Nigel Bond is located on the 63rd line of the world ranking. His game is quite consistent with this rating – Bond usually confidently beats mediocre players, but constantly has difficulties in confrontations with snooker players of the Top-50 level. At a recent tournament in Gibraltar, Nigel lost in the first round to his neighbor on the ranking list Wakelin (3:4). At the March stage of the WST Rro Series, Bond won 4 and lost 3 matches.
