Snooker legend Stephen Hendry announced his retirement from the game
after a 13-2 quarter-final loss to Stephen Maguire at the Crucible on
Tuesday.However, the 43-year-old had always known
it would be his final flourish at the famous Sheffield venue, and
revealed his decision after the Maguire defeat.
"I am officially retired now from tournament snooker," said Hendry. "I made the decision about three months ago.
Hendry was the youngest world champion when
he won at the Crucible for the first time at 21 back in 1990, while his
147 this year was his 11th competitive maximum break, but regardless he
was always going to hang up his cue.
"I've had so many it's hard to pinpoint
special ones," he said. "My first win here, obviously the seventh world
title, making maximums, I could write a book on the memories I've had

"I've never been the most emotional person even when I win. It's sad
that I won't play here again. I love playing here, but no, it's a relief
as much as anything.
