Ronnie O’Sullivan won his sixth Betfred World Snooker Championship on Sunday – and now his sights are set on equaling Stephen Hendry’s record seven next year.
‘The Rocket’ claimed his 37th ranking title – surpassing Hendry’s tally of 36 – when beating Kyren Wilson 18-8 in what was a brilliant final in Sheffield.
After the match, the 44-year-old said: “If I happen to win another one, that would be fantastic. If I don’t, then I have had a wonderful career and snooker has given me plenty of pleasurable moments.”
We make O’Sullivan the 3/1 joint-favourite alongside 2019 winner Judd Trump to defend his title next year and in the process pick up a historic seventh title.
Neil Robertson is 6/1 to win his second Betfred World Snooker Championship title – while Mark Selby, who beat the Aussie in the quarter-finals this year before just failing to the eventual winner in the semis, is 8/1.
