Tudor's career hadn't yet fulfilled its promise. "It has been frustrating," he admitted to CricInfo. "…these injuries come along and you have to accept it." But Tudor exuded optimism, saying: "I'm a more confident cricketer now, and I'm fitter too." Off the field, Tudor was active promoting youth cricket, helping to launch an innovative after-school cricket program in the London borough of Southwark early in 2002.
Despite his injuries and inconsistencies, Tudor remained one of England's most promising bowlers. He also developed into a reliable fielder and strong batsman, and many experts still believed he could become one of England's best cricket players.
