Morgan, the world No 9, broke down in tears at the Crucible after his second-round win over Ronnie O'Sullivan as he remembered his mother, Cynthia, who died in November after a long battle against cancer. "I realise no amount of moaning will bring her back," he said. "But if she is looking down on me I hope she is smiling.''
Morgan is a stablemate of Stephen Hendry and Ken Doherty, who are contesting the final in Sheffield.
His manager, Ian Doyle, said: "It has been a traumatic season for Darren and this is a desperate way to end it. Everyone at Team G de Z is thinking of him at this time.''Reuse content
