RONNIE O’SULLIVAN SAYS he will consider retirement once this year’s World Snooker Championships have ended.
O’Sullivan beat Matthew Stevens 17-10 to reach the final of the tournament, but admitted that this could be his last year at the Crucible.
The 36-year-old told a press conference: “I’ve made the decision. This might – might – be my last time here.
“I don’t intend to stay in the game long, even though I feel [I'm in] in a lot better place. I might consider having a good, long break, a couple of years off.
“I’ve weighed up the pluses and the minuses and I’m quite comfortable with the decision.
“There’s no better way [to go out] than to get to the final at the Crucible. If I win it, it’s a bonus; if I don’t, at least I can say I’ve gone out on a high.”
O’Sullivan currently leads Ali Carter 5-3 in the World Championship final.
