Full details of Ronnie O’Sullivan’s next match as The Rocket continues his quest for more major silverware.
O’Sullivan is a record 38-time ranking event winner, with his most recent success coming at the World Grand Prix in December 2021.
A six-time World Champion, ‘The Rocket’ is level with Steve Davis and remains in pursuit of Stephen Hendry’s record tally of seven.
O’Sullivan, 46, recently regained the world number one ranking and remains snooker’s biggest box office attraction with a global fanbase.
He has been an ever-present in the World Championship since 1993 and famously made the fastest-ever competitive 147 break at The Crucible in 1997, timed at five minutes and eight seconds.
O’Sullivan came into the 2022 World Championship as the number two seed and having also reached the final of the European Masters this season.
O’Sullivan’s run to the Semi-Finals in Sheffield this year has already seen him eclipse Hendry’s record tally of 70 match wins at the World Championship and reach the one-table setup for the 13th time in 30 appearances.
The Rocket has swept aside David Gilbert, Mark Allen and Stephen Maguire for the combined loss of only 14 frames, producing seven century breaks along the way.
O’Sullivan will take on fellow ‘Class of 92’ rival John Higgins in a mouth-watering four-session Semi-Final which starts on Thursday evening and is the bookmaker’s favourite to lift the trophy.
The match gets under way from 7pm BST on Thursday April 28 for a maximum of eight frames, resuming at 2.30pm on Friday, before being played to a finish over the best of 33 frames from 10am and 7pm on Saturday.
Either 2019 World Champion Judd Trump or three-time World Champion Mark Williams will await the winner in the final.
