  • TSB - Ronnie O’Sullivan withdraws stating medical reasons

    Well he has done it again, another event in Europe that he has entered and then withdrawn from, this makes it what the 5th, 6th, 7th …… I don’t know, I have lost count to be honest. He has told World Snooker officials that it is because of medic reasons and if this is true ... Continue Reading

    I would wait for confirmation of the reasons before drawing any conclusions and if it is for personal reasons and not "strong" enough ones there will be disciplinary action, I don't doubt it.
    Now this venue show 5 matches at the same time in an open setup, Mark Allen and Mark Selby playing at the same moment. So I don't think German snooker fans will have nothing interesting to watch, neither do I think they all booked solely to see Ronnie play.
    After all this hardly comes up as a surprise, isn't it?

      Jumping to conclusions! this is now the 13th event he has withdrawn from, the last professional event off of UK soil that he attended was nearly a year ago.

      World Snooker have told me Medical reason but I have been told by a close contact of Ronnie's that it is for other reasons which I am not going to put on the forum.

        Ferret, when Ronnie withdrew from EPTC1 the first info to be circulated was "for medical reasons ... back injury". That was later changed to personal reason.
        That's all I had in mind and I would wait until the official reason is published before elaborating.

          What official reason? He will just make something up as always.

          If German Masters was called SUPER-HYPER-MEGA-POWER-SHOTCLOCK-SNOOKER he would be there for sure.

          They should just give his top 16 place to someone who actually deserves and wants to play snooker.

              Yeah, its hardly surprising these days to see Ronnie pulling out of events.
              The question is, will he attend the China Open? Last year he made the trip to make tricks in his first and only match, so we`ll see.

              Top 16 place to someone else? He has already slipped down to 9th, and now once again out of a tournament, it shouldn`t be too long when his Top 16 place gets in danger if he keeps this up, we`ll see what happens.

                hI To bad for snooker in general as Osullivan is the main draw it seems that when Osullivan withdraws from Tournaments its not the same as when he is in them. He must have other reasons personal reasons for not showing up cheers Leonard from Canada

                  This is totally rediculous but not unexpected. Three days ago he was in full fire

                  I would never buy a ticket for a match outside UK and actually expect him to show up.

                      I can´t argue against him as the main draw, but in my humble opinion World Snooker and tournaments organisers should stop using him for promotion, most of the time the promotion unfortunately is bad. It was better just letting him show up as an unexpected surprise.

                        Typical of the man. As a player he is awesome but as a bloke I cant stand him. When you think of all the players that would love to be there and he just cant be bothered. If it was the world championship he'd be there no problem.

                          So well put.

                          Seriously, he could issue a statement, at the start of the season, about where he's not going to participate. Would be kinda more clear and 'fair' for those buying tickets, for those planning some evenings with snooker tournament watching, for event organisers/advertisers, bookies and those who bet, no?

                            It's not just outside the UK, it happened at EPTC 5 at South West Snooker Academy in Gloucester this year. I might be wrong but I don't even think he had the courtesy to let the organisers know/withdraw, he just didn't turn up, leaving a lot of snooker fans upset.

                            This on the back of the black in the 147 incident, he just doesn't give a **** about the fans or the game, he's just bothered about the money and himself.

                              He's continually letting down the sport imo, OK he's great to watch when on song but is not really doing his bit to promote the game at a time when we've just had a great promotional weekend at Blackpool and he goes and puts a dampener on it straight away.

                              Surely he could put aside any minor ailment and just get on with it at this important juncture, but no its the usual cant be ****ed attitude.

                              More chance of finding life on Mars than Ronnie in Brazil later in the year.
