Whitlock on Grand Slam semi-final defeat: "I gave it my all"
De Sousa and James Wade will now face off in the final later this evening in Coventry and Whitlock took to Twitter after his defeat to 'The Special One'.
"I gave it my all but ran out of steam. It’s been a good 6 weeks with two semis in 2 majors which I had not qualified directly for. Appreciate all the support and goodwill from fans and sponsors - onwards and upwards."
