Ebene News – GB – Ronnie O’Sullivan sends Jimmy White to the Welsh Open

Ronnie O’Sullivan is in the third round of the Welsh Open at Celtic Manor after sending his good friend Jimmy White 4-0

The glamorous tie was a bit closer than the score suggested, with the Whirlwind having chances in the first two frames and coming close to winning them both

However, he couldn’t make the most of his opportunities and the Rocket jumped in, then took two good breaks in the last two frames to finish the whitewash

The world champion hit a 70 in the third, then a 79 in the fourth to climb into the last 32

White was always going to be up against the world champion and he had to fight his way through all the openings presented to him, but he just couldn’t seize the opportunities.

The Rocket now face Jimmy Robertson or Martin Gould in the next round on Thursday, with the fourth round being played later on the same day

A failed eye operation should end Anthony Hamilton’s career: “I’m drained, it’s over for me”

“Yeah, it felt a bit disjointed at first, but I just had to stay focused, stay patient,” O’Sullivan told the BBC

“Control the emotions, all of the hard work I have done with Steve Peters over the years, they are useful in situations like this where you may be frustrated

“In a way, I’m happier with this victory today than yesterday because I had to fight a bit for it”

Former Welsh Open finalist Darren Morgan said of White: “ It was a big request for him, a very big request

“To be honest today Ronnie gave a lot more chances than you normally have, or we’ve seen in the last few years

“Jimmy must be coming out frustrated He wanted to go out and play well, that didn’t happen to him”
