I think it's possible. The man is a freak of nature, if anyone can defy old age and stick two fingers up to Father Time it is Ronnie.


Is this supposed to a joke? <laugh>

I believe Ronnie may win one in his 40s if he carries on playing great and the desire is still there, but in his 60s <laugh>

Think about it. Davis reached the quarters in his fifties whilst also beating the defending champ along the way. Now Ronnie is a hundred times better and more talented than Davis ever was. It's not a stretch to suggest Ronnie can nick a world title whilst in his seventh decade on Earth.

can you seriously see Ronnie playing for another 21 years and even if he did theres a difference between his 60s and Davis 50s not to mention Difference between Winning and a Quarter finalist.

Come on now, don't be silly. You must be taking the mick?

Incidentally, the last time ROS was on Talksport him and Andy Goldstein had a bit of a laugh about this! Goldstein joked that Ronnie could get a free bus to Sheffield and win the Worlds in his 60s. That got a chuckle out of me, but.... no.

I expect the line up for The World Championship semi finals in 2038 to be:

O'Sullivan vs Steve Davis
Stephen Hendry vs John Parrott

Hard to pick a winner from that.

Steve Davis may be somewhat tired though having just beaten Jimmy White in the quarter final 13-12 in a black ball finish just after Midnight.

Brecel might give the old man a few problems....

It was only a matter of time before he was knocked out as he's been in his hate snooker phase for a good few months now. It's been known for him to take a few years to get that back.
