Snooker Matthew Stevens v Paul Hunter 2004 Final Frame

By • Feb 25th, 2019 • Category: Snooker Videos, Uncategorized

Matthew Stevens fought back from a seemingly hopeless position to edge out Paul Hunter 13-12 at The Crucible.

Stevens, who began the session 10-6 behind, took all four of the opening frames to level after an inspired run with breaks of 58, 53, 64 and 73.

Hunter went 12-10 up but let Stevens back in with a missed match-ball pink in the 23rd.

The ninth seed cleared up to narrow the gap, forced a decider and edged a nail-biting decider on the pink.

Stevens was delighted with victory over his close friend but admitted his heart was in his mouth during a thrilling final frame.

“I played four perfect frames at the start, but then Paul came back well and I had to dig deep,” said Stevens.

“It was an unbelievable end. We were both going for shots and missing – it was like the Davis and Taylor final.

“I think Paul is one the top two players in the world – he was the man to beat at this tournament.”

A disappointed Hunter reiterated his desire to become world champion.

“You’ve got to believe in yourself in this game and I do – before the end of my career I will definitely be lifting that silver trophy,” said Hunter.

“I was trying my hardest but I suppose the pressure did get to me a bit.

“He was a bit lucky, but that’s snooker and it’s not the end of the world.”
