Ronnie O’Sullivan simply believes that it was thanks to him and a series of other great players that Neil Robertson did not win a second World Snooker Championship, but insists that the Australian lifts Crucible trophy again
Robertson won the world title in 2010, beating Graeme Dott 18-13 in the final, and although he’s been consistently one of the best players in the game since then, he hasn’t come close to repeating the feat.
The Down Under Thunder haven’t returned to the Crucible final since 2010 and only made it to a semi-final, losing four times in the first round in Sheffield since becoming world champions
This year, the Melbourne man was shot down by Mark Selby in the quarterfinals and when asked why Robertson hasn’t been able to add another world title to his collection, O ‘ Sullivan thinks the answer is simply that there are other great players, especially himself
« Me, » O’Sullivan told Eurosport when asked why Robertson struggled in Sheffield « John Higgins, Mark Williams, Judd are now part of the mix It’s not easy
« He will win the world title, you just have to keep working and his time will come
« I really think he’s going to win another world title, he’s too good a player not to
« Whether it’s next year, the year after He’s 37, so he still has three, four or five good years to try it
« It will be a year when the draw goes well, it will look like it was beaten, but succeed and he will win the world title »
Jimmy White agrees with the Rocket that Robertson is a sure thing to be world champion again and it’s only a matter of time
« He’s definitely going to win another world title, it’s just a question of when he’s such a good player, » said the Whirlwind
Robertson faces Judd Trump in the English Open final on Sunday as he looks to win the 19th career title and gain ground over his opponent and O’Sullivan, who are the only two players ahead him in the world rankings
