Well, I’m back from Rotterdam and unfortunately it wasn’t the result I was hoping for against world number two Mark Selby. I went down 4-1. Mark lost in the final 4-3, maybe I could say that it was a tough draw for being a seeded player – but at the end of the day you have to beat everyone who stands in your way if you want to get to the top. Nevermind! Next stop = Doncaster… and it’s for the Shanghai Masters. It may seem strange when you read that, but it’s the qualifying stages! I play on Wednesday the 7th of August at 2.30pm vs Andrew Norman. Very good player is Andrew, but I’m confident. All results will be on www.worldsnooker.com & of course I’ll update the website when I get a spare minute. I’m off to the practice table now!! All the best.
