Ranking Tournament Victories:
Highest ranked player after 2013 Shanghai Masters
The 2005 World Champion Shaun Murphy showed an impressive level of consistency during the 2012/13 season and finished it ranked No 4 in the world. However the titles he craves eluded him and he was not able to add to his collection of silverware.
The closest he came was at the williamhill.com UK Championship when he produced some stunning snooker to fight back from 8-4 down against Ali Carter in the semi-finals, winning 9-8. However he came off second best in a battle with Mark Selby in the final, losing 10-6.
