I love New York!

There is a little bit of Spring in the air, weather is getting warmer and the days are getting brighter. It's time to enjoy home and recharge the batteries that were completely depleted after a hectic last season. It's actually nice to stay home for a while. Not eager to travel again right away.
It's time to get back in shape. practice, work-outs and rest. Maybe even enjoy some of the excellent cuisine that New York has to offer in such a wide range.
I think I have to re-define setting goals to myself. Last season was so amazing, I don't know what to expect this year. One thing is clear: I will continue to be one of the hardest working guys in pool. It's not an accident I did so well, though even on the paper it looked like domination, there was a lot of close calls. Thanks to the mental strength I was able to pull away from those tricky situations.

I was honored by Billiard Digest in the current issue as the Player of The Decade. Wow, I can't even describe in words what a feeling that is. It certainly is the biggest recognition I have ever received. I actually think I have to work even harder now because players will be gearing up against me more than ever. I have to be ready.

So this is cheers to all you out there getting ready for a new season, don't forget to relax, recharge and restore.

See you on the road,
