Ronnie O'Sullivan Form


World number three Ronnie O'Sullivan ended 2020 by reaching the finals of the Scottish Open and the World Grand Prix, but lost in both deciders.

He went down 9-3 to Mark Selby in the Scottish Open final, and was comprehensively beaten 6-1 by Judd Trump in the final of the World Grand Prix.

O'Sullivan beat Ding Junhui in the opening round of The Masters in January, only to then lose to John Higgins in the second round.

At the latest Championship League event last week, O'Sullivan won his opening four games before losing three in a row.

He made a winning start at the Welsh Open when quickly defeating Robbie Williams 4-0 in the opening round.

Jimmy White Form


World number 87 Jimmy White received a walkover win in the first round after opponent Michael Joyce withdrew.

White continues to struggle for form on tour, winning just two of his last 13 matches since successful in the World Senior Championship final against Ken Doherty in August last year.

He lost two and drew one match at the Championship League last year, then lost in the first round at the European Masters, English Open and Champion of Champions.

A walkover got him to the second round of the German Masters, only to then lose once again. He also exited at the first round stage of the Northern Ireland and Scottish Opens.

At the UK Championship and Snooker Shootout, White did secure wins in the opening round. But he failed to back them up and was eliminated in the second round of each.
