Ronnie beat Neil Robertson by 9-5 to become the Welsh Open 2016 Champion.
Ronnie came back from 5-2 behind to win the Welsh Open 2016 by 9-5. He won every frame of the final session, finishing with a great 141, his 10th century of the tournament.
Ronnie has now won the Welsh Open four times, on par with John Higgins . This is his twenty-eighth ranking title, same as Steve Davis and John Higgins, all joint second behind Stephen Hendry on thirty six.
Some quotes from the interview in front of the crowd:
“I just tried to stay in there and stay patient. I’ve had a fantastic week and played so much better here than at the Masters.”
Reactions from fellow pros and commentators on twitter:
Ronnie wins the Welsh Open to equal John Higgins and Steve Davis, with 28 ranking event titles. A tremendous achievement.
