Forecast for Zhou Yuelong - Xu Si. On Saturday, April 10, 2021, the 1/2 World Snooker Championship qualification matches will take place in Sheffield. We offer you our vision of the outcome of the confrontation between two Chinese snooker players.
For Zhou and Xu, this will be the third face-to-face duel. In the previous two, Zhou has won solid victories-4:2 in 2018 at the English Open and 4:0 in January 2021 at the tournament in Gibraltar.
Zhou now closes the list of the Top 16. Moreover, it has dropped slightly in the rankings after the recent failure in the first stage of the Champions League. Having started the tournament with a victory over Trump, he managed to lose 5 subsequent matches. What does this mean? Perhaps Yuelong lost his form on the eve of the World Cup? Perhaps, but the skill is not lost so quickly, and he is obliged to beat middle-level players even in this state.
What can the 23-year-old Xu Si boast? Yes, not much. Of the more or less recent significant successes, it is worth noting only the victory in a 3-frame match with Holt, who occupies the 24th line of the world ranking. As it is, he wins against opponents of level 80+, but loses to almost all ranked snooker players. Rarely gives out large series for one approach to the table.
