It's annoying the way he is great for 2 years then crap for 2. Show some consistency mun. Anyway he's still won 2 WC's so hasn't done bad in his career but he could have won loads.

He took his eye of the ball (so to speak) was practicing less and wasn't as focussed. Hopefully he's on his way back - well done Mark.

Funnily enough Hendry's game has improved since he's stopped practicing as much!

Maybe he can be the first man to re-gain the worlds number 1 title twice!

:) I'm enormously happy about that :) :)
He's been concentrating too much on fatherhood IMO and has let his game suffer.
Great to read he's back to winning ways.
Maybe World Title no.3 ain't so far away?

It's always the way with snooker players, get a girly then get her up the duff. After that the form suffers for a while. Seen it with all the major players over the years unfortunately.

Still Marks a class act, not often you saw a Ferrari parked in Bargoed! :D

Oh no thats just it, it was never touched. I thibk most of the good people of Bargoed were either too shocked to see one in the flesh or didn't believe their own eyes!
