Fighting Talk From US Open Champ
DARREN Appleton believes Europe has the best pool players in the world and that will lead to a home victory in this year’s PartyCasino.com Mosconi Cup.
Appleton is part of the European side aiming to retain the trophy this week after slumping to a disappointing 11-7 defeat in Las Vegas in 2009.
However, Appleton believes that loss will serve as a ‘reality check’ and claims his side were complacent and not motivated enough last year.
“œThe problem last year was we all expected to win and that’s the wrong attitude to have, especially in pool as the game requires luck at the right time,” said Appleton.
