“Practice hard, try to enjoy the game and don’t be distracted too much by other things,” he said. “If you want to be good, just focus on the game.
“I’m really looking forward to it. As the world champion, this is a little practice for the tournament.
“I am just hoping I can play well at the start of the season and hopefully, I can win one or two tournaments this year.
“It’s going to be difficult, but that’s my goal.”
