Steve Davis looks back at his Crucible career – BBC Sport

Do you remember Steve Davis? For all of the mickey taking of the likes of Spitting Image, he really is a great guy. All of the ‘interesting’ guff was just sooooooo much hot air – he was single minded in his pursuit of excellence in his chosen field.

I was definitely a Davis fan, although it was good for the game to see Dennis Taylor and Joe Johnson beating him in ’85 and ’86. And I think that Steve knew it too and was man enough to accept defeat with the good grace that you’d expect from him. A true Champion.
