You write off truly great players at your peril.
Stephen Hendry is the greatest snooker player of all time.
Therefore, it wasn't a huge surprise that he should finally find some form this season, as he did in beating Ricky Walden 5-3 in the Bahrain Championship last night.
The back-to-back centuries he compiled were a reminder of how good Hendry can be.
We should not get carried away. This is only one match, one result.
But he cued very nicely indeed and if he continues this form will take some stopping in Manama this week.
I know Stephen believes he is still good enough to win titles. I personally wouldn't back against it in Bahrain.
