Ronnie O’Sullivan fears that his defence of the World Snooker Championship could be derailed by catching Covid-19 after he was “harassed” by a “boozed up” snooker fan before his first round win on Saturday.
The defending champion was having a meal between sessions of his 10-4 victory against Mark Joyce when he was approached, and says that he will now try to keep away from any busy public place during the tournament.

The World Snooker Championships begins today.
Judd Trump is the favourite after a stellar season which has seen him win five tournaments, while Ronnie O'Sullivan is the defending champion and can match Stephen Hendry's modern record of seven titles with a victory in two weeks' time.
Or might this be the year when we finally see a winner from outside of a current or former British Commonwealth country?
There was disappointment for the Irish players involved in the qualifiers, with all eight failing to progress to the main draw.

Ronnie O’Sullivan insists he could not care less about the prospect of equalling Stephen Hendry’s record of seven Crucible crowns as he prepares to begin the defence of his world snooker title.
In a sign the 45-year-old might be falling out of love with the game again, he went on to admit he would prefer to adopt a non-playing role in the tournament and described how he would treat his time in Sheffield as a “holiday”.

Ronnie O'Sullivan insisted Friday he had no interest in equalling Stephen Hendry's modern-day record of seven titles on the eve of defending his world snooker championship crown.
The 45-year-old O'Sullivan is widely regarded as the most naturally gifted cueman in snooker history.
But the six-time world champion has often given the impression of being out of love with the game, with the Englishman saying he planned to treat his latest trip to Sheffield's Crucible Theatre as a "holiday".

Ronnie O'Sullivan has warned that he will “kick off” if fans invade his personal space during the World Snooker Championship after fearing that his mother would die from Covid-19.
Crowds will be permitted inside Sheffield Crucible’s Theatre throughout the tournament, where O’Sullivan will start the defence of his title on Saturday, beginning with 33 per cent capacity for the first round and potentially rising to a full crowd for the final.

Alan McManus retires following Bai defeat

Card image cap


Alan McManus announced his retirement from professional snooker following a 6-3 defeat to Bai Langning at Betfred World Championship qualifying.
The Scot has enjoyed an illustrious career, spanning 31 years, since he turned professional in 1990. The highlight came at the 1994 Masters, when McManus ended Stephen Hendry’s five-year title-winning streak at the London event by defeating him 9-8 in a thrilling final.
McManus won two ranking titles during his career, at the 1994 Dubai Classic and the 1996 Thailand Open. The Glaswegian reached a further five ranking finals on top of those wins.

Xu Si ends Stephen Hendry's World Championship dream

World number 82 Xu Si produced an impressive display to end seven-time World Champion Stephen Hendry’s bid for a Crucible return at Betfred World Championship qualifying.
This week’s event is just 52-year-old Hendry’s second tournament back since returning to the professional circuit after nine years away from the sport.
The 36-time ranking event winner had stepped away from professional snooker after the 2012 World Championship, but was offered a two-year invitational tour card at the start of this season and elected to take it up.

Twenty-seven years after dashing Jimmy White’s dreams in their fourth World Championship final, Stephen Hendry returned to haunt his former foe once again with a 6-3 comeback win in Sheffield.
Hendry’s one-sided triumph in their first qualifying round clash belied a desperately gruelling affair in which the only flicker of their respective former glories came in the sixth frame when the Scot summoned a steely 66 clearance.
Hendry, who now faces China’s Xu Si in the second qualifying round on Wednesday, said: “It wasn’t pretty and I kind of thought it would go that way because there was so much hype on it.

Stephen Hendry defeats Jimmy White in World Championship qualifying

Hendry had warned that this trip down memory lane for snooker fans would not be pretty, and he was right. This was nothing like the epic Crucible showdowns these two put on for crowds at their peak, but it was never likely to be, given one man was playing only his second competitive game in nine years, and the other to retain his place on the tour.
And White may now have to rely on a wildcard from the snooker authorities to maintain his 41-year run as a professional, following a defeat which had harrowing shades of his most painful defeat of all. The 1992 world final saw Hendry reel off ten consecutive frames to win 18-14, but not before a crucial miss from White prevented him moving to within three of a first title.

Tuesday briefing: Starmer tipped to fight Covid certificates

Top story: ‘Divisive’ plan, say some Tory MPs
Hello, Warren Murray with you again on the other side of the chocolate egg mountain.
Keir Starmer is likely to oppose Covid status certificates, the Guardian has been told, as Boris Johnson promised they would not be introduced earlier than mid-May. A senior Labour source said ministers had not adequately explained how it would work, its purpose and the cost to the taxpayer. Forty Tory MPs have pledged to oppose certificates as “divisive and discriminatory”, potentially wiping out the government’s majority. Under the scheme, only people who can prove they have had a coronavirus vaccine, a recent negative test, or antibodies from an infection in the last six months would be allowed into some settings such as theatres and sports stadiums. Starmer has said he thinks the idea runs against British instinct.

Seven-time world champion Stephen Hendry beat old rival Jimmy White in the first round of qualifying for this year's World Championship.
Scot Hendry, playing just his second match since coming out of retirement, came through 6-3 in Sheffield.
The 52-year-old must win another three rounds in qualifying to reach the World Championship, which begins on 17 April.
"I don't think I will have frightened anyone with that performance," Hendry said.
Defeat for Englishman White, 58, means he is likely to lose his place on the tour next season.

“In the next round I could play a lot better but I don’t think my game is ready to win four tough matches to get to the Crucible yet.
“Hopefully if I can keep getting better and keep improving, my technique becomes reliable and I can get to a better pace, then next year will be the goal to get back to the Crucible.”
It was a candid admission of his shortcomings by the Scot, in what was only his second professional match since he returned after a nine-year absence with defeat to Matthew Selt in the first round of the Gibraltar Open last month.

Frame 3
Stephen is on a straight pink but has not managed it. Jimmy in turn fluffs the offered red. Oh dear lads.
Jimmy White 1 Stephen Hendry 1
Jimmy misses a simple one. Stephen is back in again, and has another opportunity. Puts a medium range black down the side and that's in. Hendry has a really good position here, balls nicely spread, black and pink both gettable. He moved to 58-9 and then puts away a black. Needs a simple red here and Jimmy needs snookers... Hendry is going to go on and miss this, far from convincing but enough to get over the line here.

World Snooker Championship Qualifiers Preview and Tips

Qualifying marathon starts tomorrow
128 players set out at Sheffield's Institute of Sport aiming to qualify for the main event at the Crucible Theatre, which starts on the 17th. 16 places are up for grabs, so the players are split into groups of eight.
The first three rounds are played over best-of-11 frames, before a best-of-19 final.
We kick off with a match-up that rightly warrants more attention than anything we'll see in qualifying and much of the Crucible action. They may both be no-hopers for the title but is there really a snooker fan out there who won't be tuning into

Stephen Hendry is relaxed about the prospect doling out one final snooker indignity to his great rival Jimmy White when the pair meet again in the first qualifying round for the World Championships in Sheffield on Monday.
The 52-year-old’s comeback after a seven-year absence from the tour was given an extraordinary new twist last month when he was paired with White – whom he famously beat in four world finals between 1990 and 1994 – on the first step back towards the Crucible.
