Kim Huybrechts believes changes he has made to his game could re-ignite his career ahead of tonight's BoyleSports World Grand Prix second round clash with Gerwyn Price.
Former Premier League star Huybrechts came from a set down to beat Brendan Dolan on Wednesday night, his first win in the double-start tournament since 2016.
The energetic Belgian has endured a difficult few years on and off the oche but believes brighter times are ahead after making changes to his equipment and support team.
"I decided to change everything around me," the 34-year-old explained.
"I had great success with the teams around me for many years and I had the best manager in the world but sometimes you just need something a little bit different to kick-start your career again.
"We will see over the next two years if it works.
"I was in a bad spot after losing my parents in 2018. I got depressed but I've worked really hard on myself the last year.
"Everything is in a good place now. My wife is pregnant again so that will be amazing to have a new member of our family. I'm really happy with myself at the moment.
"It's been a while since I played a TV tournament but I have definitely missed the feeling of being on stage against the big players. I'm happy to be back.
"I was chuffed to win against Brendan, I had to fight really hard to win that and I know I will need to keep fighting to keep going in the tournament."
The winners of tonight's games will return for the quarter-finals on Saturday October 10, with the semi-finals taking place on Sunday October 11 and the final on Monday October 12.
