'Where's My Trophy?' - Ronnie O'Sullivan Is Not Happy With Snooker Authorities

'Where's My Trophy?' - Ronnie O'Sullivan Is Not Happy With Snooker Authorities

The World Snooker Championships got underway on Saturday with Ronnie O'Sullivan taking on Gary Wilson in the first round.

It was not the World Championship which was on O'Sullivan's yesterday morning, though. It was the UK Masters, a tournament which he won, for a record seventh time, back in January.

O'Sullivan beat Joe Perry in the final at Alexandra Palace and had been promised a trophy to mark his win.

Months later and no trophy forthcoming, O'Sullivan wanted to know why, tweeting World Snooker and WPBSA chairman Jason Ferguson looking for answers.

O'Sullivan ensured it was not a 'wind up'.

A five-time world champion he might be but every trophy still matters to the 41-year-old.

O'Sullivan has had a rancorous recent relationship with the snooker authorities. Due to what he feels has been unfair treatment by snooker's governing body, O'Sullivan has refused to cooperate in interviews.

He's either kept his answers brief or acted in an especially peculiar fashion, singing Wonderwall in one interview and putting on a robotic voice in another.
