  • John Higgins has won his last 4 matches against Ronnie O'Sullivan.
  • Ronnie O'Sullivan is a six-time World Champion.

Head to Head

Ronnie O'Sullivan has won 38 of his previous 76 matches against John Higgins, who has won 35 times. There has also been three draws.

The pair have met seven times since the start of 2021 with Higgins winning six of them, including the last four in a row.

John Higgins Form

John Higgins needed a final frame decider to get the better of Jack Lisowski in the quarter-finals, winning the final two frames to seal victory.

Higgins had enjoyed routine 10-7 victories over Thepchaiya Un-Nooh and Noppon Saengkham in the first two rounds at the Crucible.

Higgins has lifted one title this season having won the Championship League. He has also made the finals of the Northern Ireland Open, English Open, Scottish Open, Tour Championship and Champion of Champions.

Ronnie O'Sullivan Form

Six-time champion Ronnie O'Sullivan has yet to really spark into life at the Crucible, but hasn't needed to to reach the last four.

Dave Gilbert (10-5), Mark Allen (13-4) and Stephen Maguire (13-5) have failed to put up much resistance despite O'Sullivan being far from his best himself.

It has been a mixed season for O'Sullivan with just the World Grand Prix added to his career list of title. His only other final appearance came at the European Masters.
