Selby admits Triple Crown distraction


Mark Selby admits the prospect of holding all of Snooker's top prizes at once is in his thoughts at The Masters.

Selby secured the World Championship in May and then backed that up with the UK Championship title last month.

The world number one overcame Mark Williams 6-5 on Wednesday in his The Masters opener, and the 33-year-old admits the chance to hold all three major crowns at once is on his mind.

He told the BBC: “Coming here, winning all three tournaments has been on my mind. It is such a tough tournament to win but it will be better if I just go out and play.”

Williams was the last player to hold all three titles at once, a feat he achieved in 2003.
