Ronnie would start getting known for his snooker skill at a young age, making his first century break at the age of 10. He then got his first total clearance two years later, before becoming the British Under-16 Champion at the age of 13. The following year, he made his television debut and would then make his first maximum break in the 1991 British Amateur Championships. In the same year he would become the IBSF World Under-21 Champion, before turning professional.

During his first season as a professional, he would win 74 of his first 76 matches, setting a winning streak of 38 successive victories. He earned the nickname “The Rocket” after setting the record for fastest best-of-9 frame match. He would become the youngest player to qualify for the World Championship, but lost in the first round. In 1993, he was named as WPBSA’s Young Player of the Year, then won his first title the following season at the UK Championship, making him the youngest ever winner of a professional ranking tournament. He ended the season at number nine in the rankings, and was named WPBSA’s Player of the Year. While he did not win during the 1994 season, he consistently had strong performances. He would win two ranking titles in 1996, which were the Asian Classic and the German Open. He won the UK Championship once again in 1997 but didn’t defend his title the following year as he was recommended by doctors to rest; his net worth was already significant.

In 1999, O’Sullivan would win the Scottish Open and the China Open. His first World Championship title would come in the next year, then in 2001 he would become the world number one, and win his third UK Championship. He got another World Championship title in 2003 before getting his second Masters title in 2004. 2006 would give him a third Masters title, and the following year he would win both the UK Championship as well as the World Championship. His fourth and fifth World championship wins would come back-to-back in 2011 and 2012. Over the next few years he would win his seventh Masters title and his fifth UK Championship title.

Aside from playing the sport, Ronnie broadcasts regularly as part of the radio station Phoenix FM. In 2014, he became the global ambassador for snooker in a deal made with Eurosport, which led to the creation of “The Ronnie O’Sullivan Show”, on which he interviews other professional players. In 2016, he wrote the crime novel “Framed”.

For his personal life, it is known that O’Sullivan has three children. She had a child with Sally Magnus and later had two children in his relationship with Jo Langley. In 2013, he became engaged to his partner, actress Laila Rouass. He denies any firm commitment to a religion. He is a fan of the Arsenal football team, and is also into motor racing, plus participates in running events. In 2015, he endorsed Labour leader Ed Miliband in the general elections.

# Quote
1 I just want to live for the moment. Tomorrow’s not important, next month is not important, what’s happened in the past is not important. That is my journey.
2 I’ve tried a number of religions and gurus in my time, including Buddhism, but ultimately they didn’t do as much for my peace of mind as snooker.
3 It’s so strange that the more successful you become, the more people want to give you things. And the more you can afford, the more people want to give you things for nothing. It doesn’t seem right.
4 When I stopped taking drugs I got really depressed. I was struggling with life. It’s a bit chicken and egg. I was depressed because I’d stopped drinking and taking drugs, but I only drank and took drugs in the first place because I was depressed. Ultimately I’d rather be clean and depressed than on drugs and depressed. At least there’s a way out, and you’re reliant on your natural feelings – if you’re down you really are down; if you’re up, you are genuinely up.
5 On playing against John Higgins at the 2016 Scottish Open: John’s done fantastic things in snooker along with Stephen Hendry, probably two of the greatest sportsmen Scotland has ever had, so it will be a fantastic occasion. But there are so many good players left in the draw and, from Friday onwards, the crowds are going to be entertained by some high-quality snooker.
6 The most important thing, the biggest love of my life, is my snooker. I’ve never been so emotionally ingrained in something – in a person, an object, anything – as I have in snooker.
7 People think I don’t like interviews but I don’t mind speaking about proper and interesting stuff. When it’s stupid stuff to build your image and you are told to mention this and mention that, I hate it.
8 I’ve been semi-successful. I’ve done all right but I’m not the player I was. Who do I think will win the world championship? John Higgins. Have I been good for snooker? I don’t know.
9 I don’t think I suffered with depression, I don’t think I’m a depressed type of person – I just think I suffered a depression to do with snooker, and I just couldn’t handle it. I could go out and play, but take me out of there and I couldn’t do life. It was a nightmare, my life just felt like a bit of a nightmare.
10 The relentless pursuit of perfection has been my problem over the years. It’s maybe held me back.
11 Running clears my mind, and gives me a reason to get out of bed in the morning.
12 My dad’s method in his madness was to try every sport and then observe what I liked. I played football, tennis, golf, cricket but I loved my snooker.
13 Looking for perfection is the only way to motivate yourself.
