Mark Selby: The Leicester Jester has one of the best heads in the game
Mark Selby goes into this year’s Dafabet Masters defending both his title and reputation .
The 30-year-old kicks off his campaign at London’s Alexandra Palace against Mark Davis.
But Selby has been stung by comments from world No.4 Judd Trump, who claimed he was impressed at the Leicester Jester’s success – considering he “doesn’t actually play to a great standard”.
Trump added: “For me he has the best head in snooker. He misses a lot of easy balls but can still come back and clear up the table the next shot.
“When that happens to me or Ronnie O’Sullivan quite often we’re gone for that frame because we are so disgusted with ourselves.
“Mark just forgets it. He’s a good player but probably not in the top five in the world. But with his head, it makes him world No1 or No2.”
World No.2 Selby, targeting his fourth Masters title, hit back: “I don’t take too much on board what other people say.Winner: Selby celebrates his Masters victory at Alexandra Palace last year
“There may be people out there who think I am a top-three player , and those who don’t think I’m top 10.
“But mentally I do think I am one of the toughest out there, and you often hear it said that 90 per cent of the game is in the head at the top level.
“You obviously need ability and talent, but you can have all of that in the world and if you are not strong enough mentally it is not going to happen.
“There are players out there with great techniques who don’t do as well, because their rivals are mentally tougher.
“It’s a huge part of the sport. Look at Peter Ebdon, and the stick he gets.
“He has won more than loads of the people who have a go at him, he is so strong mentally and credit to him.
“He might not be as gifted as Ronnie O’Sullivan but he has still won a lot in the game.”
