Matthew Stevens's Biography
In 2000, Matthew Stevens narrowly lost out to fellow Welshman Mark Williams in the World Championship final. Eventually going down 16-18.
After Peter Ebdon sent Matthew Stevens out in the semi-final of the World Snooker Championships in 2002, in a nail-biting contest that went right down to the wire, Ebdon commented:
"I'd just like to say that Matt is an outstanding player. I'd love to see him in the final. He's one of the nicest guys on the tour and it's a shame there had to be a loser today."
In 2003, Matthew Stevens broke his duck in ranking events, with victory in the Travis Perkins UK Championship, defeating Stephen Hendry 10-8 in the final.
In spite of his lack of top tournament victories, Matthew Stevens has an excellent record at the Crucible. A record which continued in the 2005 World Championships, yet once again he fell at the final hurdle, losing in the final to qualifier, Shaun Murphy, 16-18.
Like a lot of his fellow professional snooker players Matthew Stevens has been seen on television turning his hand to poker, and played well.
