[Newyddion Ffordd Chwaraeon]The British Open Billiards opened on Monday (26th) and it was a big upset! Ronnie O’Sullivan, world number one, “Rocket” continued to be in a sluggish state, he lost 1:4 to 26-year-old Swiss player Alexander Ursenbacher in the qualifying round and missed the main match. This is Usimbazhuo’s third time shooting down “Rocket” in the ranking competition, and he has become the seven-time world champion’s “super nemesis”!
O’Sullivan withdrew from the European Masters due to an arm injury earlier, until he returned to the World Mixed Doubles Invitational last week, but was clearly out of shape, and eventually stopped in the stage group with his partner Reanne Evans and missed the Championship. “Rocket” moved to the British Open Championship yesterday and faced Usimbazhuo, ranked 63 in the world, in the qualifying round. The latter was encouraged by his mother and played well again, with a rate of 1:4 (104:7, 80 : 22, 22 : 63, 60: 23, 70: 24) upset Osullivan and entered the race, and the Rockets defeated for the third time after Wales in 2019 and all of England in 2020.
Usimbajo said after the match: “Because of my mother’s work schedule, I never thought she would come to watch the game. I was surprised and happy to see her this morning. I was very nervous all day, not eating too much, she’s a great mum, but she put a bit of pressure on me to be there to watch because I wanted to make her proud of me.” Usimbajo continued: “Playing against the best player in the world, that’s the easiest way to motivate yourself, I don’t know if other people don’t want to face Ossuriyun, but I want to give it my all, that’s it.” the ultimate test, I’m always 100% in the game.” For Usimbazhuo, who just lost his cat in April, it will undoubtedly bring some comfort. As for O’Sullivan, after his defeat, he plans to come to Hong Kong next week to take part in the “Hong Kong World Pool Masters” held at the Red Pavilion.
