I think that match stung Judd quite badly. I think that Rory is the lowest ranked player ever to knock out a top eight player at the Crucible.
However please provide a link to give evidence that Judd claimed a shoulder injury.
I know what some posters are like on here. They will start saying you made it up as you are bitter at Judd's incredible recent success.

If not then Ronnie would take number 1 spot after conceding against Hendry at 4-1 down.

Refusing to shake players’ hands; swigging vodka and smoking fags during matches despite the ban; and his notorious spitting incident. Fu has to be well up there. Terrible in victory, too. Who could forget that time he called John Higgins a dirty tourist after he hammered him in the Scottish Open final? Or him telling Hazel Irvine that Ronnie O’Sullivan was finished after he beat him in the Grand Prix final?
