RONNIE THE RECORD BREAKER

Ronnie O’Sullivan’s two centuries at Wembley tonight means he has now made 42 in the Masters and broken Stephen Hendry’s record of 41.

Hendry has played in five more stagings of the tournament than O’Sullivan.

It also took the total number of centuries seen at the Masters this year to 27 – one more than the 2007 record of 26.

However, I’m not sure this should necessarily be seen as proof of rising standards.

In 1996, there were 21 centuries made at the Masters. Three years ago there were just 11.

centuries are a good record to have but nowhere near as important as titles are.

well done on the total though.

We've got the final most of us wanted to see if we're honest. It's been an absolutely wonderful week on the table but a terrible one off it for all sorts of reasons.
Let's hope the final lives up to expectations.

If Ronnie comes at the table in the same state of mind as in his previous matches, he'll win - by quite a margin...

Like he played yesterday evening; no opposition in that "zone".
