Ronnie O’Sullivan has lavished praise on Mark Williams following their epic quarter-final contest at the Masters which saw the Welshman come out on top.
“I just didn’t score. I didn’t make any breaks. The cue ball wasn’t great. I hung in there. 3-0, he struggled a little bit,” he said.
“But he played better today, he played the better snooker. He was more clinical.
“I was happy to get it 5-5, I had the chance in the last, but when you’re not cueing well – blacks like that are missable.
“I’m pleased how I dug in today. Can’t be too disappointed.
“It was just pure battling qualities. At 5-4 you think, ‘I’ve got to make it happen.’ There was just far too many mistakes in there for me. Some basic, basic mistakes. It’s just the way it goes.
“He’s been playing well for a long time. Since he won the World Championships, I don’t know what year it was, 2019?
“Since then he’s been playing phenomenally consistent, scoring really well. I’m surprised he hasn’t won more given the quality he has and how well he’s playing. Hopefully he goes on and wins this. He deserves it.”
