QUESTIONS OF THE MONTH - JUNE 2012
9th June 2012
Vladimíra: Hi Mark, the time reserved for snooker players holiday past very fast. You had problems with neck injury at the end of last season. Did you have a rest enough? Are you all right?
Mark: Yes I'm more or less 100% fit after having a few weeks off.
Vladimíra: How are you looking forward to a new snooker season? Have you got any resolutions that you want to come true?
Mark: Just to try and stay No 1 for as long as possible and to win more ranking events.
Vladimíra: The first big event will be the Wuxi Classic in the end of June in China. How will you prepare for this tournament that will be this year a ranking event for the first time? You have got there a lot of your fans. How do you feel playing there?
Mark: I will prepare exactly the same. I have a good record in China, I hope it continues!!
Vladimíra: It seems that you'll be long time from home, because afterwards you are waiting the SangSom 6-red in Thailand, which you have won two years ago and next rankings tournament the Goldfields Open in Australia in the mid July. Do you have any time to relax during these tours? Would you manage to speak a few words in Chinese or Thai?
Mark: Well last year we had to go straight to Brazil too!! If I'm doing well in tournaments then you don't really get enough time to sight see and relax as your playing all the time. I'm slowly learning a little Chinese!
Thanks, Mark. All the best until next time.
