Snooker: Griffiths considers retirement

Click to follow
Terry Griffiths is considering leaving professional snooker. The Welshman has this season dropped to No 14, his lowest ranking since he broke into the world's top 16 in 1983. Speaking after his 5-2 first-round victory over Gary Wilkinson in the Dubai Duty Free Classic, he said he may retire if his ranking drops any further. 'Nothing is definite, but I will have to take a close look at the situation if this happens,' he said. 'I am 46, an old 46, and it gets harder each season to get going again. I will never give up completely, I could go back to being an amateur.' Yesterday, French Canadian Alain Robidoux knocked out James Wattana.
