To some people's amusement, I've long lusted after Stephen Hendry, the best ever snooker player. (How good is he? Well, the most centuries in a season record is his. Who's second? Erm, Stephen another year. And he's third. I think he's still fourth too, and quite possibly fifth.)
I've done so since before his first world championship in fact. Over all those years, he's been in some incredible matches – one against Jimmy White in the late 80s stands out for me, where frames were taking six or seven minutes – but oh what a semi-final! And what a second semi-final to go with it.
Let's hope the final's half as good. Provided Stephen wins 🙂
