THE MAN IN BOTH CAMPS
Uniquely both 2021 world finalists share the same coach, Chris Henry, a former player, who focuses on the mental side of the sport as well as technical, mechanical and visual matters.
Henry told SunSport: “My job is to help each player perform at their best. During the final, we won’t talk about the other player.
“Even outside of this situation, I never talk about opponents, because you cannot control that, all you can control is what you are doing. Be your best.
“It is a nightmare because obviously one will win but one is going to lose, too. It’ll be quite emotional.
“It will be mixed feelings. I’ll be very disappointed for one of them and absolutely delighted for the other. But I have to try and show a completely neutral response.”
