Interesting though you've chosen Davis over Hendry. I didnt vote for Davis as he bottled a 8:0 lead in a World final and a 7:0 lead in the UK final. Those were some huge bottle jobs.
The reason I chose Davis over Hendry was because I think it was Davis' mental strength that helped prolong his career. After Steve dominated the 80's, he still was able to carry on playing to a good level long after his peak. There's no way Hendry would have had the mental fortitude at the age of 52 to have been able to make it to the quarters of the WC, defeating the defending Champion along the way.
In short, Davis' mental toughness kept him going, when his game was far from his best.
