O'Sullivan wants more titles

Ronnie O'Sullivan is regarded as one of the greatest snooker stars of all time but reckons he has under-achieved, so his rivals should take notice as 'The Rocket' wants to win more Masters and World Championship titles.

The 36-year-old is known for his pacey play around the table and his natural talent is lauded by some of the biggest names in the sport's history. However where there has been success, there has also been controversy surrounding O'Sullivan and in recent season he has slipped down the world rankings. People looking at snooker bets should bear this in mind.

O'Sullivan showed he is still a class act by thrashing Ding Junhui to win the 2011 Premier League title, with that result making it 10 Premier League title and seven wins in eight years for 'The Rocket'.

Ask any snooker fan and they will speak about O'Sullivan's thrilling 147 breaks and even the times he plays left-handed – which can wind opponents up – as his talent has electrified audiences around the globe since turning professional.

O'Sullivan is second on the all-time career prize money list but reckons he is going to be "the underdog" when the Masters comes round at Alexandra Palace in January and also the World Snooker Championships in April. Anyone following the snooker betting should remember this.

Despite all his success, he is only ranked 11th in the world and claims he should have experienced more title success throughout his career.

"I've won four UK titles, four Masters and three Worlds, which is a good haul, but in my mind I have under-achieved," said O'Sullivan.

"I should have won two more World titles, two more Masters and maybe another UK. I've been in nine Masters finals and I should have converted another couple of those."

The reigning World Snooker Champion John Higgins recently said O'Sullivan remains a big threat to all the competitors in the biggest tournaments, despite the fact he has struggled to match the heights of earlier in his career in recent years.
