With only nine ranking tournaments a year, you might have expected a bit more on the BBC Sport web site about the German Masters. Incredibly on the morning of the final there had been NO stories about the event proper. Yes, a lot of box office stars tumbled out in qualifying including Ronnie O’Sullivan, John Higgins, Neil Robertson and Ding Junhui; yes, the Berlin event was being televised on a rival broadcaster in Eurosport/Discovery. But that doesn't make a difference in other sports and to find absolutely no coverage at all was a real surprise. Back on Wednesday the world No1, the world champion, Judd Trump, Shaun Murphy and many others were still involved, and the semis threw up a guaranteed new ranking event winner. Worth a mention, surely.
