Neil Robertson – The Melbourne Machine
What a run of luck for Neil Robertson, who has been the undisputed player of the 2021/22 snooker season. The Australian has been a constant presence at the business end of events, winning four prestigious awards.
Robertson even missed the opening few tournaments of the season last summer because he married his long-term companion. After that, it was full steam ahead, with an instant triumph in the English Open followed by a hat-trick of massive trophies in the first few months of 2022.
The first was the Masters at Alexandra Palace, which was immediately followed by another in the Players Championship when he defeated the same opponent in the final, Barry Hawkins.
The 40-year-old may be rated third in the world, but he's unquestionably the finest player on the planet right now. Robertson won the World Championship a dozen years ago, and it's still a mystery why he hasn't been able to replicate that performance in Sheffield.
Is this going to be the year?
Jack Lisowski – Jackpot
This season has been less encouraging for Lisowski after a 2020/21 season in which he came so close to breaking his ranking event duck. Only one semi-final appearance and one other quarter-final appearance do not make for compelling reading.
Lisowski was able to keep his spot in the top 16 mostly due to his performance last year, but with so many points to protect, next term might be difficult. The Englishman, at 30, is at a point in his career where he should be using his skills to propel himself to the higher echelons.
His innate drive to generate aggressive snooker is always at odds with the clear necessity for him to adopt a more tactical B-game approach. Lisowski's reluctance to heed the latter's guidance is why he loses so many matches he should win.
