During the World Grand Prix final, Ronnie O’Sullivan made a “disrespectful” comparison to an amateur snooker player.

In the first moments of the championship, The Rocket was far from his best.

As Ronnie O’Sullivan faltered in the World Grand Prix final on Sunday, he was compared to an amateur player.


During the afternoon session, neither O’Sullivan nor his opponent Judd Trump pleased seven-time world champion Stephen Hendry.


In the best-of-19 match, Trump seized control of the game early on and quickly built a 4-0 lead in Leicester.


O’Sullivan trailed 5-3 at the break, but he won three of the next four frames to put the match in a thrilling position when it resumes this evening.


Hendry, who is an ITV analyst for the competition, offered a candid assessment after the session concluded.


According to the Scot, the standard was incredibly poor in comparison to what was anticipated from O’Sullivan and Trump.


“[O’Sullivan] obviously needed a good second session to get back into the match,” Hendry stated.


“You have to admit that, in terms of standard, it’s been disappointing, especially with regard to Ronnie’s performance last night, given the players’ prior performances before reaching the final.


However, watching to see who could gain the upper hand has been equally fascinating.
