Ronnie looked extremely tired this afternoon, he even fell asleep briefly in his chair, but somehow still managed to beat Li Hang, who was playing well, by 4-3. Ronnie made century n° 920 in the process.
He will now face Michael White tonight in the last 16 … let’s hope that he can get some rest and come back refreshed. If he manages to win, he is likely to play John Higgins tomorrow. If he doesn’t win, well, it might actually be for the best as he will have a bit more time to rest before the German Masters qualifiers next week. Whatever happens, he’s been doing extremely well over the last two months.
