Based on a record 67% of matches won, Andy Ware is statistically the best player in this year’s Grand Prix event. Half of all his matches have gone to a tie break and the fact that he’s won 68% of those has helped him to 4 event wins this year. He’ll be the man to beat again today.

Brett Arkley has won over half of his matches (55%) and that gives him a clear chance if on form today. Interestingly, he just enjoys the better of 8 previous meetings with Ware which could just make him the answer today.

With limited opportunities this year, Sam Ashton has found it tough winning only 32% of his matches. He’s only won once from 13 attempts against todays opponents and will be determined to improve on that today.
