It is now down to the final four in the World Championship 2017 at the Crucible Theatre. The final line-up includes former champions. Mark Selby will meet China’s Ding Junhui in the repeat of a classic face-off for the title of World Champion. Ding Junhui intends to even the score with Mark Selby in the last year’s World Championship finale, as the duet confront each other at the stage of Semi-Final 2017 at The Crucible. Ding narrowly missed his chance of becoming Asia’s very first World Snooker Champion after he lost the match 18-14 to Mark Selby in a gripping climax twelve months ago. Ding and Selby were exceptional in their quarter final victories over Ronnie O’Sullivan and Marco Fu respectively.
