Personal Quotes (1)

On winning the World Championship: "Twenty years as professional - blood, sweat and tears on the road. Qualifying in places like Prestatyn and Malvern. So many family and friends have backed me. It is unbelievable. I'm world champion but I'm going to be the same person, I'll be playing in all the tournaments and hopefully I'll be a good role model as world champion. Any kids growing up wanting to play, just stick at it. Lots of hard work, practice and self-belief, things like this can happen."
