Judd Trump issues Crucible warning ahead of World Championship

21 April 2017, 07:24 | Andy Ferguson

On the eve of the 40th snooker World Championships at the Crucible, many fans are predicting a maiden title for either Judd Trump or Ding Junhui.

World Snooker chairman Barry Hearn has denied Ronnie O'Sullivan's claims of bullying and intimidation, insisting comments from the five-times world champion are "unfounded" and "inaccurate". "He has been the flagbearer of Chinese snooker for the past 10 to 12 years". A player in the mould of Ronnie O'Sullivan and the late, great Paul Hunter, a sporting icon who could make news on both the front and back pages of national newspapers.

It was the UK Masters, a tournament which he won, for a record seventh time, back in January.

Selby now has some precious time to himself before his second-round match and the 33-year-old from Leicester added: "I'll get on the practice table over the next few days and go and then go and watch Leicester (in the Champions League) on Tuesday night against Atletico Madrid - hopefully they can get through".

"The best big-occasion players I see in the field would be John Higgins, Ronnie O'Sullivan and Mark Selby and that's disregarding some fantastic players", Davis said. "He is like an elder brother to all of us. The way he plays, in the long-form matches it suits him".

Davis, snooker's dominant figure in the 1980s, only retired a year ago during the World Championship.

Since Ayala announced her decision, she was removed from the Loyd case and 22 more first-degree murder cases by Gov. A week later, the office received another envelope filled with a noose made of twine.

O'Sullivan has deliberately and repeatedly given one-word answers to questions he has faced after matches, while in an ITV interview at the World Grand Prix in February he gave a series of responses in a robotic voice.

"I don't think I have done a lot wrong in my career". Yan became the first player born this century to play at the Crucible, and the victor of that clash plays O'Sullivan next. He gets his Crucible campaign under way today against Fergal O'Brien.

O'Sullivan has had a rancorous recent relationship with the snooker authorities.

He needed two hours, three minutes and 41 seconds to win a decider against David Gilbert and book his place in the main draw.

"I hope all parties can move on from this position and concentrate on the brilliant entertainment provided by players at the Betfred World Championship".
