Ronnie O'Sullivan upset by Hossein Vafaei in world open last 16, Judd Trump advances

Posted : 22 March 2024

Ronnie O'Sullivan's journey in the World Open came to an unexpected halt after suffering a surprising defeat by Hossein Vafaei in the last 16 in China.


Despite O'Sullivan's remarkable break of 125 in the eighth frame, leveling the match at 4-4, a crucial missed black in the thrilling final frame led to Vafaei clinching a 5-4 victory, setting up a quarter-final clash against Ding Jinhui.


Reflecting on his win, Vafaei expressed admiration for O'Sullivan, labeling him as his hero, and described the opportunity to play against him as a dream come true.


Meanwhile, elsewhere in the tournament, 2019 World Open champion Judd Trump secured a spot in the quarter-finals with a 5-3 victory over David Lilley, gearing up for a showdown against Kyren Wilson, while Barry Hawkins advanced after defeating Stephen Maguire 5-1, setting up a quarter-final encounter against Neil Robertson, who secured a 5-1 win against Chris Wakelin.


Additionally, Jackson Page and Elliot Slessor are set to face off in the quarter-finals following their respective wins in the last 16.
