Ronnie on the spot

Following his match with Xiao Guodong today, Ronnie O’Sullivan was interviewed by the Sina, the official website for the tournament in China. Click below to watch the interview…

Click here to watch the interview and hear Ronnie’s thoughts on various subjects such as his match with Xiao, whether he feels pressure as the World Champion and whether he thinks the winner of the tie between him and John in the next round will go on to win the title.

He is also asked for his opinion on Chinese snooker players at the moment and gives his view on who is the best talent out of Ding, Marco Fu, Xiao Guodong and Liang Wenbo, as well as who will win the Ding v Wenbo match at the Crucible in a couple of weeks.

Though (as Dave Hendon has pointed out) he is clearly tired and bored with the slow pace of the interview, he at least has kept it clean this time, unlike last year! Enjoy.
