I'm sure in this time he practiced a bit but it's different stuff when you play official tournaments. I'm surprised to see him in the final with such big chances of winning the trophy
Hendry's been saying the same thing, that it's all been too easy for him. "He's just better than the rest of them, simple as that"

I do like how he calls Ronnie the best ever, while Ronnie says it's Stephen

1993 was too soon for you, I guess. Hendry - White 18-5.

I hope Ronnie dishes out the bagel, 18-0

I'd say Hawkins might get 5 to 7 frames.

Apprently Hendry was asked what are Hawkins's chances and said he had none .

Yup, I was 4 but Hendry was in a Federer-type domination at that time, so not really the same. If O'Sullivan pulls off a Klijsters win at the world's, one will have to wonder why people bother watching snooker without him.

I am actually a fan of Higgins as well (I know about the scandal, etc. but I was never sure he was guilty) but O'Sullivan is such a joy to watch when on form.

Re: WWW Snooker world championship SF: O'SULLIVAN - TRUMP

What if Hawkins proves everybody wrong and "detonates the bomb" ?

One can dream...

Re: WWW Snooker world championship SF: O'SULLIVAN - TRUMP

Ronnie's never lost a final at the Crucible IIRC. Would be some surprise but it won't happen. 2-3 quick mistakes at the beginning and O'Sullivan will be in front before you know it.

Re: WWW Snooker world championship SF: O'SULLIVAN - TRUMP

I don't understand why those on this forum seem to think O'Sullivan is unbeatable. Yes, Hawkins is the underdog but Ronnie has been far from his best. It depends on how Hawkins starts.

I don't think he's unbeatable, I just don't think Hawkins is the one to do it.

2 perfect frames from Hawkins to level it

I don't think Hawkins will crumble to the extent Dott and Carter did. It's not a foregone conclusion like those 3 matches were. The result was never in doubt before those matches started because Dott was mentally fragile (and still sometimes is) and Carter always bricks it when he faces O'Sullivan but Hawkins is facing a lesser O'Sullivan and he's mentally stronger than Dott was and Carter still is, despite all the talk.

I hope Hawkins can keep this kind of form up, he's potted every kind of ball imaginable in the last frame.

O'Sullivan is hilarious . Still a joy to watch.

Re: WWW Snooker world championship SF: O'SULLIVAN - TRUMP

Hawkins deserves to be level, but O'Sullivan looked more potent, especially early on when Bazza's safety was really just poor.

I think Hawkins needs to win the first mini-session this evening. If he's level after twelve frames, he'll be well chuffed.
