Ronnie v Higgins Ranking Win Tallies

Postby mick745

With Ronnie in a good position to draw level once again with John Higgins on number of ranking titles won at 29 apiece, this shows the relative position of the two during their careers. Higgins was once 6 titles ahead after winning the UK in 2000 but O'Sullivan has pegged back after a profitable spell during 2002-2005 and was three ahead by the time he won the Northern Ireland Trophy in 2009. Since then it has been pretty nip and tuck:

Actually, it shows he had a weaker era, since he never managed to win anything after he turned 30.
Coincidentally, that's the time when the trio of O'Sullivan, Higgins and Williams were entering their prime.

Had he turned pro at the same time as they did, he wouldn't have won half of what he did.
