Snooker World Championships 2004 Recap

A review of the 2004 world championships.

Ronnie O’Sullivan romped to a second world title after a convincing 18-8 win over Graeme Dott.

Resuming 16-8 ahead after the Monday afternoon session, “The Rocket” needed just 20 minutes in the evening to take the two frames he needed for the win.

The damage was done in an afternoon session in which O’Sullivan won seven of the eight frames – punctuated only by a 106 from Dott, the Scot’s second ton of the tournament.

Breaks of 92 in the first of the evening, and 33 in a scrappy second were enough to finish the inevitable win and give O’Sullivan another world crown.

The 18-8 scoreline was all the more incredible given that Dott had won the first five frames of the match.

At that stage, there was talk of the biggest upset since Joe Johnson’s win over Steve Davis in 1986.

But O’Sullivan fired in a 100 break to get off the mark and took the next three to close the deficit to just one.

Dott was still playing well and was very much in the game at 7-7, but afterwards O’Sullivan began to pull clear.

He finished Sunday’s play 9-7 ahead and by the end of Monday afternoon’s session, Dott knew the game was up with the Rocket two away from the win.

O’Sullivan was focused and ruthless, and even the appearance of a streaker at the start of the evening session could not distract him.

The final two frames were won quickly as O’Sullivan completed the most convincing win in a final since Stephen Hendry’s 18-5 win over Jimmy White in 1993.
