I agree, Ok its still a pretty good achievment reaching the 100 mark, but more important century stats include for instance centuries per frame played, how many tons in Major tournaments, etc... And given the maount of tournaments nowadays and unlike some people think I don't think this record will stand for too long.... someone will eventually come along and break that, records are meant to be broken after all.
Who though? Ding's had the season of his life and has only made 62, Ronnie won't enter nearly enough to get close.
Edit: Also part of it is being the first one to do it. Look at maximums. There are over 100 of them now, but Steve Davis will always be remembered as the first one to it professionally, just as Robbo would be first one to do it this case.
Exactly. People are saying one day it'll be beaten. It doesn't matter, Robbo will always be the first to do it. He won't care if someone beats it because if they do then they will have had to go for it from mid-way through the season and are they going to risk losing frames in order to achieve it when it's already been done? Just because they might get one more? It won't matter. From this angle, I think it won't be done again for 10 or 20 or maybe more years. Maybe it'll never be done again. Robbo has had to go for it, and he's had to do things like win PTC matches 4-0 with 4 centuries, and get two in matches either side or whatever ridiculous things he was doing in that PTC last year.
Yeah I agree Sonny.
And you know what, it may actually be a similar record to Ronnie's fastest maximum break in 5 min 20 sec, people keep saying (Dennis
) it will probably never be beaten, it's not impossible, there isn't such a thing, but yeah those 100 tons he'll get will prove to be very hard to beat, plus you're right, when it's already been done, the next player closest to that certainly won't take any unenecessary risks just to break that.
