For what it's worth, I don't see why Steve Davis should be pressured into retirement.
He is still good enough to be ranked among the top 32. He is still good enough to have appeared in two ranking tournament quarter-finals this season. He is still good enough to have qualified for the Crucible.
OK, so he was poor in losing 10-2 to Neil Robertson in the first round of the Betfred.com World Championship but this doesn't mean he should put his cue away for good.
Steve has more than earned the right to carry on. In fact, having him in tournaments enhances them because of his legendary status.
He seemed to get a louder cheer than any of the other 31 players when he was introduced into the arena.
If he wants to carry on, why shouldn't he?
It doesn't diminish his past achievements and the fact that he can still turn the odd trick some 31 years into his professional career is surely worth celebrating, not carping about.
