Seven-time world champion, Hendry, believes Judd Trump will win the 2015 World Snooker Championship and advises his compatriot McGill.

“My fancy was Trump,” said Hendry ” he was impressive enough, he’s got to improve as everyone will.”

“Probably the most impressive in the first round was Robertson, he basically brushed his opponent aside.”

Hendry added: “O’Sullivan never got to fourth gear, but he didn’t had to, I think as the tournament progresses it’s going to be very interesting.”

Hendry was asked about his compatriot, Anthony McGill: “I think he shows a tremendous performance,” he said.

“He’s over there, it looks like he’s doing it for years and it’s only his debut. In The Crucible nothing seems to scare him.”

“I’d like to see him win more frames in one visit, if he wants to win the world championship he’ll need to do it more often as the tournament progresses.”

I’m really impressed with the way he held himself together”, he summarized.
