Set to face Ryan Day in the last 16, the 48-year-old maestro remains a formidable force at the pinnacle of snooker.


Amidst a stellar season, O'Sullivan's quest for glory in Sheffield holds historical significance, as victory would see him join the elite ranks of players to clinch all three Triple Crown events in a single season, a feat achieved only by Steve Davis, Stephen Hendry, and Mark Williams. Reflecting on his performance, O'Sullivan attributed his resurgence to the guidance of Barrow, expressing renewed confidence in his game and hinting at his enduring ambition to push the boundaries of snooker greatness.

Meanwhile, David Gilbert and Robert Milkins engaged in a tense battle, with Milkins staging a remarkable comeback to keep the tie finely poised heading into the next session.
