Ronnie O’Sullivan to Play Snooker Grand Prix

O’Sullivan Eases to Last 8Stevens: “O'Sullivan is the best that’s ever been.” Five-time world champion Ronnie O’Sullivan defeats Matthew Stevens in the World Snooker Championship’s second round.

Ronnie O’Sullivan, The Rocket, will play at the World Grand Prix in Wales next month.

The Rocket entered the tournament after claiming his fourth Welsh Open title in Cardiff on Sunday.

O’Sullivan was originally scheduled to play Jimmy White in a Snooker Legend Night exhibition match in Morocco on 12 March which has now been moved to 9 April.

The World Grand Prix will take place in Llandudno, north Wales, from 8 to 13 March.

O’Sullivan won his fourth Welsh Open crown, matching the record set by John Higgins last year, and the 28th ranking title of his career, equalling the tallies of Higgins and Steve Davis. Only Stephen Hendry is ahead of that formidable trio on 36.

Five-times world champion is probably aiming for a sixth world title in Sheffield on April although he recently said: “I’m not really bothered about Sheffield, I am not bothered about any tournament. I just treat it like a vacation and enjoy the time that I am away.”
