Hendry was well past his best in the 2000s. In fact Hendry was past his best when he won his 7th World title in 1999. The other semi finalists were peak O'Sullivan, Williams and Higgins.
Past his prime at 30? Tell me another one! One of snooker's great myths. I was convinced I'd never see another player as good as Hendry in my lifetime, but he failed spectacularly after turning the ripe old age of 27. Too spectacularly to ignore.
And oddly, his game did not look like it had declined at all. Funny that.
