I don't think Selby has the game either to win a world title because of the same reasons. That is why it is tough, you are up against players that have that relentlessness.
I've been playing like a plum for 17 years, I've had my struggles and a lot of people have put it down to depression or my demons but it has nothing to do with demons.
The hot and cold snooker did and does make me depressed. I felt myself getting sucked in during the final but said 'don't go there, you've had a good week'. I don't have those expectations anymore.
It's sad for me because if I was able to put my finger on it and get it right I would smash all these players up - I would demolish a lot of them.
For me to win three world titles is a miracle in itself. I didn't think I'd win one because over 17 days it requires you not to have bad spells.
If I didn't have my problems with the game over the years maybe I could have possibly chased (Stephen) Hendry's record of seven, but I've just got to be happy that I've had quite a successful career when I've either been really good or really poor
