Murphy, 36 years old this year, won the 2005 World Championships, but in the 11 ranked matches he participated in this season, he stopped in the first three rounds in 10 of them, and 6 of them were eliminated in the first round. . The Scottish Open in December last year was Murphy’s only event to reach the finals this season. As a result, he lost to Mark Allen and he fell out of the top ten in the world rankings.

If the evaluation criteria are the number of spectators and participation,s and snooker are very popular here. In the world There are actually few games that have more spectators than billiards.”
“We haven’t contacted the people at IOC, and we don’t know how they judge a sport. Working with sports directors around the world is very laborious, just like you play Rubik’s Cube on the back of a running horse at midnight. difficult.”
“The IOC people seem to have changed the rules on a whim. Personally, I never want to participate in such things anymore. Our time and energy should be spent on other things.”
