Rocket Ronnie To Defend Crown
‘@WorldSnooker1: Ronnie O’Sullivan has stated his intention to play in 2013 World Champs. We are awaiting his formal entry, required by Feb 28th.’
The news that every snooker fan has been eagerly waiting for, defending world champion Rocket Ronnie O’Sullivan will be defending his crown in Sheffield this April/May. The last time the Essex cue man graced the baize was way back in September being beaten by snooker minnow Simon Bedford in a Players Tour Championship. Ronnie will now return as number one seed for the big one which is great news for the sport as a whole.
There were three possible routes it was believed Ronnie the four time world champion could have taken; returning, retiring or taking to the less pressure filled Snooker legends circuit. The great news is though he will be back.
Ronnie’s return from his snooker sabbatical is huge news, he will be the player everyone wants to beat at the Crucible. As snookers box office name and stand out star he will have the support of the vast majority of those in Sheffield who will be hoping that snookers most naturally talented player can find the impressive form of last year and be a real contender for snookers biggest prize.
Welcome back Rocket.
