How Davis managed to lose is totally beyond me!

Leading 8 - 0 against Taylor, (who I consider to be the worst player ever to win the title)!

He had 13 breaks of over 50 in that final,so from 8-0 down i would say thats equivalent of most winners if not better than quite a few winners...

Look at this for a uk final from 1988

Breaks of


Equivalent to anyone of that era or any era,winner Doug mountjoy beating Stephen Hendry 16-12 probably some of the best snooker seen in that decade in any final..he played like that for two years in twilight of his career.

Davis had form, lost from 7-0 up to Higgins in the UK final two years before.

Remember Mountjoy's Indian summer well giggolo, also recall Rex Williams having a decent season from nowhere around the same time. Think he lost a final to White?
