Thought Parrott was trying to pull a fast one at the end there. He said he was trying to move the red hanging over the pocket but it didn't look like he hit it hard enough if that was his intention. Davis looked a wee bit cool at the handshakes . . .

Hendry wants 'greatest ever' win  
 
Hendry will start his 22nd Crucible campaign on Tuesday
Snooker legend Stephen Hendry believes winning this year's World Championship would be the most impressive feat of his illustrious career.
The 37-year-old has won seven world titles, with the last coming in 1999.

"Winning any competition these days is so special but to be world champion again would be my greatest ever achievement," said Hendry.

"This year's world title could be won by anyone from a bunch of four or five - and I believe I'm one of them."

Hendry, who has not won a ranking tournament since the Malta Cup in 2005, started the season as world number one, but he is down to eighth in the provisional list.

"Being world champion is more important to me than being number one in the world," said Hendry.

"I hope that if my record of winning the title seven times is beaten, it's beaten by me.

"The number one ranking proves you are perhaps the most consistent player over one or two seasons.

 
Stephen Hendry on his practice routine

"But I was number one for eight years in the 1990s and it doesn't hold the same special feeling as being world champion."

Hendry will be embarking on his 22nd Crucible campaign when he gets under way against Dave Gilbert on Tuesday, but the Scot insists he has lost none of his will to win.

"My practice regime is the same in time and length as that for any other tournament but I think when you are approaching the World Championship you unconsciously put a little bit more effort in," he said.

"You concentrate a little bit harder because you know the tournament coming up is the big one.

"At the moment I'm practising on my own. I used to play against people a lot but at this point of time it's more beneficial to me to play on my own. It makes me concentrate better.

"Sometimes, when I play against people, after a couple of hours, my mind is starting to wander, I'm not concentrating properly.

"But now, I'm playing four or five hours a day on my own. I put on my iPod, listen to music and play all day."

Remember the way Davis reacted when this happened.

Yes, they're sensitive to questions!"

What happened with the red ball? I just heard them talking about it after,  but I didn't get it.

Steve Davis is an incredibly nice fella, though. (Goes into Fearon mode). I sat across the aisle and one row behind him on a plane once. Unlike Fearon (imagine what the poor man would have had to endure), I didn’t bother him or speak to him, but throughout the flight there were people coming to him to talk, ask for autographs, etc. and he was not just professionally pleasant, but genuinely nice to everybody. He came across as bright, intelligent and a good conversationalist. His wife and two young lads of about 8 and 10 were directly in front of me and I’ve never encountered better behaved or mannered kids. A very positive (and not at all boring) impression, all round.
