Resurgent Aspinall on World Grand Prix run: "I believe I’m a big game player and I think I’ve proved it"

Nathan Aspinall failed to win the World Grand Prix last Sunday. A few days later, The Asp nevertheless looks back with satisfaction.

Despite nearly conceding a 146 that cost him at the World Matchplay but he is glad with a return to the upper echelons of the game and one that could see him gain further opportunities.

“I wanted to make Michael win it, and he did. In that last leg, that 146 finish – I saw it out of the corner of my eye on the scoreboard. That cost me a fortune at the World Matchplay," said Aspinall.

“I thought he was going to take it out again, but fair play to Michael, he has been phenomenal all week.

“I never gave in, and it’s another final for me so I’m very happy. I just need to stop giving him head starts!”

“I’m so proud of myself. I’ve had so much support,” he added.

“I believe I’m a big game player and I think I’ve proved it this week, beating the world number one, the world number four and the world number nine.

“Michael has been amazing though. He’s back to his best, and he is the deserving winner of the tournament.”
