If there have been a few moans and groans about the new round robin format at the Royal London Watches Grand Prix, one player you won’t hear complaining is Ronnie O’Sullivan.

With three wins from three under his belt, Ronnie is sitting pretty at the top of group C and all in favour of the new format.

He believes it is fast, exciting and just what’s required to give the sport a shot in the arm on television.

It will be interesting to see whether TV viewing figures have gone up or whether the same people are tuning in as did last year when it was a knockout event.

If they have, the organisers can claim it as a success, despite the various complaints.
