Five-time world snooker champion Englishman Ronnie O’Sullivan set a world championship record. In the opening round of the competition in Sheffield (England), he defeated the representative of Thailand Tepchay Un-Nuh with a score of 10: 1. It took Ronnie just 108 minutes – the fastest victory in world championship history, according to the BBC.
The previous record was held by the Englishman Sean Murphy, who last year defeated the Chinese Luo Honghao dry, but spent 41 minutes more on it.
O’Sullivan spent an average of 14 seconds on one hit. Ronnie’s next opponent will be Chinese Ding Junhui.
