The 2021 Tour Championship final takes place on Sunday. Ronnie O’Sullivan will face off against Neil Robertson after beating Barry Hawkins in the semi-finals of the competition. And Express Sport has all the action as it happens.
O’Sullivan chose to fire shots at Milton Keynes in the aftermath of his triumph over Hawkins, admitting he much preferred Celtic Manor.
“Yeah, well it’s a lot better than Milton Keynes,” he said.
“Category A prison that Milton Keynes. I’ve seen enough of those over the years.
“I’ve spent far too long there and that’s a sad gaff. I didn’t enjoy that towards the end so it’s nice to come to a nice resort where the food’s good and you can actually see some greenery and some trees.
“It’s just a nice place. Milton Keynes is not the best place but it’s served it’s purpose and done what it done but it can send you a bit crazy after a while.”
O’Sullivan also believes he ‘got out of jail’ against Hawkins.
“He deserved to win really and I feel for Barry obviously because he’s been grafting at his game and he’s been unlucky in a few results,” he added.
“He deserved that victory tonight just for the effort he’s put in all season.
“It’s a horrible way to lose but hopefully he can respond from that because he played great today.
“He outplayed me really, I just got out of jail.”
Express Sport will now bring you all the latest scores from the competition.
