Ronnie O’Sullivan is snooker like Bolt Athletics Or Jordan Basketball. But he likes to compare himself to Bruce Lee. Of course, with a somewhat more split personality. At the age of 46, the Englishman continues to ride the wave at the World Cup, the big event, at the Crucible Theater in Sheffield. Rooney in the quarters and He faces Scotland’s Stephen Maguire from Tuesday (11:00, Eurosport). In the second round he swept Allen (13-4), It was his 71st World Cup win. absolute record.
One more record for RocketKnown to play quickly. The largest exponent of his speed is one of his stopping points, which is 5 minutes 8 seconds In the perfect round, 147. He is also the player with the most frames (1134) in a World Cup, and the player with the most hundreds (more than 100 uninterrupted rounds) (189). But he still had a huge challenge ahead, to reach all seven of Stephen Hendry’s titles. The missile has six crowns.
“Most of the stats mean nothing to me. What I am most proud of are the Majors (World Championships, Masters, English Open) and that’s it,” O’Sullivan said, straight to the point, as he said when he said it He can beat a lot of tour players with just one arm. It’s also normal to see him break up from matches, but in the big leagues, it’s always there. Fast and smart at the table.
Rooney talks about his snooker talent: “It all comes down to so many years of practice, dedication and trying to be the best version of yourself. He’s like Bruce Lee, he trained for several hours, not only mentally but also physically. We are experts in different fields, but I try to approach my sport in no different way. “
His first World Cup was in 2001, Then came the years 2004, 2008, 2012, 2013, and the most recent is 2020. Now he’s in the quarter-finals again, and if he advances he can meet “Kryptonite” John Higgins in the semi-finals, which was seen with Lisowski (beating Robertson). He’s one of the competitors that O’Sullivan respects the most, and who will first have to break Maguire. The Scot, who is a very temperamental player, said he had vision problems after his victory over Zhao. Bad company to get in front of the rocket.
Celebrity and friend Gascoigne
O’Sullivan is well known in the UK. He was nominated several times for Athlete of the Year, but it’s also true that he is sometimes apathy and scandalous. They made him a kind of “terrible brat”. He shares a good friendship with Paul Gascoigne and has received criticism from some players such as Iranian Vafaei, Who hinted that Rooney should retire if he wasn’t enjoying snooker as he once said.
O’Sullivan, who often plays with a Casio watch until the time plays, is a different character, a record-breaker. Without Selby, the current world champion, on stage, in the Crucible, all lights are pointing to Rooney. A star, but with a special aura, with lights and shadows: the rocket.
