Keep in mind this is more about level of play and not titles or greater career. Even though Selby isnt that far away either in that department. At least in terms of Triple Crown titles. And he still has time on his side.
Some stats: They have played in two world finals. The first had been in 2007 which a prime Higgins won against a Selby who had his breakthrough. 10 years later prime Selby beat a post prime Higgins.
The 2009 World Championship quarterfinal was their only encounter imo when both men played to the best of their abilities over a long distance match. Higgins won that one 13:12. It shows how evenly matched they are.
But looking at the overall H2H , Selby's leading 15:11. And 9:5 in the "real matches" (no Premier League, Championship League involved).
So what do you think?
