Ronnie O’Sullivan – Tops Again

The field is deep these days.  No one may ever take Hendry’s seven titles.  Christ, I would have bet no one would ever take Davis’ six.  Fuck all that.  Ronnie is the greatest natural talent to ever swing a cue.  Earl Strickland can eat a bag of dicks.

Not merely a 147 to defeat Williams.  Not merely a semi-final drubbing of Hendry, arguably the greatest player (at least for consistency and longevity) of all time.  Not merely a flash of what’s possible.  A demonstration of amplitude and, for Ronnie, fortitude.

Well done, Rocket.  Welcome to the new standard of play everyone else.
