Concern for Ronnie O’Sullivan is voiced by Stephen Hendry prior of the World Snooker Championship.

Ahead of the world championship, snooker stars Ronnie O’Sullivan has drawn criticism from Stephen Hendry.


Stephen Hendry worries that Ronnie O’Sullivan will surpass his record of seven World Snooker Championship victories. The two snooker legends are level for world title victories, with O’Sullivan the favorite going into this year’s competition.


Over the past few months, The Rocket has been nothing short of spectacular. In fifty days, he has won three titles: the Masters, the UK Championship, and now the World Grand Prix.

O’Sullivan hasn’t lost on British soil since October, and the demanding 17-day schedule may be the only thing standing in the way of a World Championship victory. When he last won in 2022, he had previously acknowledged that he found it difficult to go in the competition.


Hendry has questioned why O’Sullivan is unbeatable by all the best players. He criticized Mark Williams, Neil Robertson, and Mark Selby before reminding out that O’Sullivan defeated even Judd Trump in the World Grand Prix final.


The best players, where are they all? Right now, Ronnie is running all over snooker, the Scot told talkSPORT.


The Williamses, the Robertsons, and the Selbys… Trump was no match for him. Who’s going to stop him from becoming the global champion?


Hendry was informed that while O’Sullivan seems to be improving with age, several of the best snooker players are nearing the conclusion of their careers and are thus losing talent.


The 55-year-old concurred and said that he has never seen any better snooker than O’Sullivan’s 6-1 victory over Ding Junhui. When the 48-year-old does ultimately decide to retire, Hendry wonders who will take up his position.


It’s outstanding. We must commend him for his longevity and style of play,” he remarked. It’s amazing. I’ve never seen better snooker than what he played in parts of the semi-final last week. He’s putting a new twist on the game.
