Ronnie O'Sullivan wins Masters in style

WSA: SAGA Insurance MastersRonnie O'Sullivan won the SAGA Insurance Masters with a brilliant display of snooker.

In the final the enigmatic Englishman came up against China's Ding Junhui who had been showing some excellent form earlier in the tournament. The highlight being his 147 in round one.

After slipping to 2-0 behind Ronnie got into gear and produced a flurry of high breaks, including four centuries. He only allowed Ding one more frame and won 10-3 to scoop the £130,000 first prize.

Junhui was visibly distressed during the final, apparently because of rude behaviour from one particular spectator who was later kicked out.

This was O'Sullivan's third Masters title and 36th major win overall.

The event took place in Wembley Arena, London, England Jan 14-21. It was not a ranking event.
