Judd Trump comes very close to matching Ronnie's playing level. During his two-year domination, Judd managed a 50+ break frequency of around 2.10 frames per break over 50. And 6.86 frames per break over 100. That century break rate is on par roughly with Ronnie's best and the 50+ rate is a bit weaker than Ronnie's best seasons which are at a dizzying 1.93 and 1.89 frames per 50+ break. It's not out of the question that Judd could reach that level before he retires. Judd's long potting is better than Ronnie's ever was and I think he does manage to create more chances than Ronnie, which is why he's struggled against Trump in recent history. But Trump doesn't currently have the same level of cue ball control. Cuetracker has all of these stats if you are interested.prob
It could be a long wait before pro snooker produces another like Ronnie. His love for Judd Trump and Judd's daring, aggressive style, shows what kind of snooker gets Ronnie excited, and it is also the kind he always played himself, most likely better than Judd could ever dream of playing.
Yup, Ronnie's the GOAT in my view.
But I don't imagine that anyone can beat those stats on a season-by-season basis, Judd could probably only match them. Beating it would basically mean making a 50+ pretty much every frame, which is tough to do at that level when guys can knock in a long red off your break and clear up.
