Yeah, probably not great from a punting perspective. I'd say more awareness of matches and tournaments when eurosport is covering them live, and not just in the player.I'd say it's early enough to be judging guys but there is definitely a second season syndrome thing for these guys, Pang in particular not gonna be taken for granted by any top player this time, so might be some pressure on him.Hard to know with all these chinese players. Chang Bingyu and Bai Langning are others I've an eye on. And a guy i think could have one or two results this season is Peter Devlin. Probably kiss of death on the lot of them
Chang and Bai would both have fallen under my comments above above being improved but still a way of challenging for top 16/32. Chang scored really well last season, though he didn't have too many meaningful results to show for it. He's not impressed as much so far this. And Bai definitely looked much improved at the WC Qs. He also hasn't looked as good so far this. I can't have Devlin, though, I'm afraid. He doesn't score anywhere near well enough for me. I know he beat Mugtthew this week, but the clue is in the name there!
