Judd Trump v Ding Junhui: Odds, tips and how to watch World Open final

The Chinese spectators at the World Open have been rewarded with one of their dream finals as home favourite Ding Junhui takes on world number two and this season’s form man, Judd Trump.

Ding has been without silverware since winning the UK Championship in 2019 but he has looked rejuvenated this season and sealed his final spot with a nail-biting 6-5 semi-final success over Neil Robertson.

Things were more plain-sailing for Trump, who outclassed Welsh youngster Jackson Page 5-2 in his last-four encounter, and he is bidding to win his fifth title in what has been a stellar campaign.

Trump has claimed ranking titles at the English Open, Wuhan Open, Northern Ireland Open and the German Masters which is why he finds himself at the top of the one-year ranking list, with only Ronnie O’Sullivan within hailing distance.

Ding Junhui to win - 7/4

All of the spectators in this Yushan crowd are going to be siding with home hope Ding and, while that could heap extra pressure on the shoulders of the Chinese cueman, he is performing well enough to manage the situation.

After a couple of quiet campaigns, Ding is well and truly back to his best and that was evident as he reached his second consecutive UK Championship final in December, finding only O’Sullivan too strong.

The 36-year-old has also made the World Grand Prix semi-final and quarter-finals of the English Open and the International Championship, showing a level of consistency that had been long missing.

And Ding has certainly raised his game for his home crowd, reeling off wins over Liu Hongyu, Cao Yupeng, Shaun Murphy, Hossein Vafaei and Robertson and posting a series of big breaks along the way.

Prior to his semi-final tussle with Robertson, Ding had compiled seven centuries and although he failed to build on that against the Aussie, he was still excellent under pressure.

Trump has been less convincing in his run to the final and he has had an easier passage, with Kyren Wilson his only victim of note.

The Ace In The Pack played Page, featuring in his maiden ranking event semi-final, in the last four which means four of his five victories were recorded against players outside the world’s top 52.

So there is every hope that Ding can deliver in what is sure to be an electric atmosphere and he will be buoyed by the fact that he had Trump’s measure in a 6-4 win in the UK Championship semi-final in December.

The world number nine has the £170,000 top prize in his sights and with that will be a place in the Tour Championship and potential to go even higher in the rankings ahead of the World Championship.

Over 1.5 centuries for Ding Junhui - 8/11

This promises to be an open contest between two of the game’s great break-builders and, with the pockets playing generously, there should be plenty of big breaks.

Over 3.5 centuries is of plenty of interest at 4/7 but at slightly shorter odds backing Ding to grab two of those would be the approach for punters take.

This will now be played over two sessions and is a best-of-19 encounter, which enhances the chances of some lofty scores, and Ding has had a century in four of his five matches, registering seven in total.

In his last-32 victory over Yupeng, Ding mustered breaks of 119, 110 and 100 while his 5-0 whitewash of Vafaei in the quarter-final featured knocks of 135 and 102.

So, if Ding is to triumph and cause the upset, there should be every chance that he does so with at least two centuries which is available at 8/11.

When the Chinese ace defeated Trump 6-4 in the UK Championship semi-final in December there were three centuries in total and that suggests this should be another free-scoring showdown given how well the playing conditions are.
