Terry Griffiths:… (losing a world championship) Unless you have experienced this type of emotional shock and the bleak interior landscape it creates, it’s hard to comprehend the impact. The memory never leaves you and that’s as a positive and negative force…. (He won the championship the next season) it happened only because at the moment of deepest despair I had the strength to stand and confront the future, instead of wallowing in the past. Many can’t summon the strength, they can’t get up, their fight is over. Victory goes to another, stronger competitor.
