Coventry Editorial 19th Dec, 2021   0

RONNIE O’Sullivan will play Neil Robertson in today’s Cazoo World Grand Prix final at the Coventry Building Society Arena.

 

O’Sullivan dispatched Stuart Bingham 6-2 to set-up a clash with Robertson who beat world number one Mark Selby 6-3 in his semi-final.

 




Rocket was seeded seventh for the tournament and is appearing in the final for the first time since 2018 when he beat China’s Ding Junhui.

 


And Australian Robertson, seeded eighth, returns to the showpiece after triumphing against Graeme Dott in February last year.

 

The final will be played over 19 frames with the afternoon session starting at 1pm and the evening session beginning at 7pm.

 

O’Sullivan has beaten Andy Hicks, Hossein Vafaei, Jimmy Robertson and Bingham on his way to the final conceding just six frames along the way.

 

Robertson defeated Noppon Saengkham, Anthony Hamilton, Yan Bingtao and Selby to reach the showpiece and has made three century breaks in Coventry.
