O’Sullivan ties record with 7th World Snooker Crown

Last night, the World Snooker Championship has come to an end, and it has done so in a historic fashion.

Ronnie O’Sullivan won his 7th World Snooker crown, tying the All-time mark set by snooker great, Steven Hendry. The Englishman bested
Judd Trump 18-13 in the finals; cementing his triumphant run.

When asked about the victory and its historic implications, the near 30-year vet took his victory with gratitude and humility, talking up his predecessor Steven Hendry.

“Hendry is an absolute legend of the game,” said O’Sullivan. “It is just a number – I do not get too caught up in that.”

The 46-year-old has dominated the game following the rise of Hendry, who was regarded as the greatest in the sport after winning an unprecedented five world titles in a row, on top of being the youngest-ever world champ, winning at 21 back in 1990.

Hendry however, whose career parallels with his foe O’Sullivan, stated his praise for the matter, saying he was “surprised it’s taken him so long.”

The ‘King of the Crucible’ maintains that O’Sullivan is a “winning machine” destined to eclipse the record, despite his notions of retirement back in 2011.
