Ronnie O'Sullivan Delighted To Set Up 'All-Aussie' Final At Players Championship

Ronnie O'Sullivan easily beat Mark Allen in the semi-final of the Players Championship on Saturday evening.

Coupled with Neil Robertson's victory against Judd Trump on the other side of the draw, it set up what O'Sullivan called an 'all-Aussie' final.

Throughout the tournament in Preston, O'Sullivan has adopted an Australian accent.

"Yeah, mate, I played pretty good," O'Sullivan said following the match.

I was cueing good, Mark was struggling with the conditions - I was struggling with the conditions, we were both struggling with the conditions - but I just seemed to adapt that little bit better.

I'm pleased to be in the final; a great chance, an all-Aussie final tomorrow with me old fair dinkum mate Robbo.

Speaking to ITV, O'Sullivan elaborated regarding those tough conditions.

"To be honest with you the table was the hardest table I've ever played on in my life.

"They were like cannonballs. I don't know if it's the balls or the table but I'm hitting balls out of my skin there and they're not going where I wanted them to go.

"But I was comfortable because I knew he was feeling uncomfortable. Hopefully they will get a new table before we play the final tomorrow."
