I tend to agree with Hendry, I get confused when I watch him play.
Even today versus Maguire, sure, he's winning, and he's potting some good balls, but I don't see anything to get excited about.
And this has always been my problem with watching Yan, I just don't find it an interesting experience. There's something excruciatingly boring about it, even when it isn't boring, if you know what I mean.
Every great shot is countered by one that's hideously awful, and either one that it is, it seems to be played and reacted to with the same low energy apathy.
I don't really know what the reason is, and I do feel bad for thinking in this way, as, technically, he doesn't do much different to any other player, but I just always find myself thoroughly distracted by other things when Yan comes on, win or lose, big breaks or safety play.
Am I alone in this?
Can anyone else describe this 'phobia' (?) more reasonably?
