The Rocket’s 2019 Snooker World Championships campaign launches on Monday when he takes on James Cahill, the only amateur to ever reach the Crucible.
We present, arguably the best of all-time, Ronnie O'Sullivan's incredible career by numbers…
Ronnie’s career earnings - no player has won more in the history of snooker.
The year Ronnie made his competitive debut. He won his first 38 matches and quickly ascended to the top of the sport.
The number of The Rocket’s career centuries. A prolific break-builder, no player has more in professional competition.
The number of seconds taken for the fastest competitive break at the 1997 World Championship
The percentage of Snooker World Championship winner bets placed on Ronnie O'Sullivan by Ladbrokes customers
The number of his ranked title wins. Tied only with Stephen Hendry, on current form it could be only a matter of time before he takes the lead.
At 17 years and 358 days old, Ronnie’s age when he became the youngest ever UK Championship winner in 1993
Ronnie holds the record for the most officially recognised maximum breaks in professional competition
Ronnie has notched a record seven Masters wins AND a record seven UK Championship wins
The number of Ronnie’s World Championship wins. Victory this year would mean he’d tie with Steve Davis and Ray Reardon (6) in all-time wins and one behind Stephen Hendry (7)
His amateur title victories before turning pro. He won the British Under-16 Championship, the IBSF World Under-21 Championship and the Junior Pot Black.
‘The Rocket’s’ current world ranking. It’s the fourth time in his career he’s held the top spot. His Tour Championship win in March meant he returned to number one for the first time since May 2010 - the longest gap between number one spells by any player in the sport’s history.
You can catch his World Championship opener against James Cahill at the Crucible on Monday 20th April on BBC Two from 1pm.
