2003 Masters (snooker)

The 2003 Benson and Hedges Masters professional non-ranking snooker tournament took place between 2 and 9 February 2003 at the Wembley Conference Centre, London, England.

Paul Hunter, who was aiming to win his third title in a row lost 3-6 to Mark Williams in the semi-final, before Williams went on to beat Stephen Hendry in the final 10-4 to win his second Masters title. Hendry meanwhile got the highest break of the championship with a 144 against Ken Doherty in his semi-final match. Hendry also failed a 147 during his quarter-final match against local favourite Jimmy White after failing to pot the final pink.

This was the last Masters to be sponsored by Benson and Hedges after the ban on tobacco advertising which came in summer 2003. The Regal sponsored Scottish Masters, Welsh and Scottish Open also ended that season (2002/2003) but Embassy did continue to sponsor the World Championship until 2005.

Famous quotes containing the word masters:

    The spiritual kinship between Lincoln and Whitman was founded upon their Americanism, their essential Westernism. Whitman had grown up without much formal education; Lincoln had scarcely any education. One had become the notable poet of the day; one the orator of the Gettsyburg Address. It was inevitable that Whitman as a poet should turn with a feeling of kinship to Lincoln, and even without any association or contact feel that Lincoln was his.
    —Edgar Lee Masters (1869–1950)
