Plenty of fascinating insights into the world of Ronnie O’Sullivan are revealed in his upcoming documentary, The Edge of Everything, including his blunt message to snooker pundits.
The film is due for cinema release on 21 November before coming to Prime Video two days later and it is sure to be a hit with fans of the Rocket, the game which has made him famous and many people who have yet to be enticed by the man or the sport.
O’Sullivan’s unique career, life and take on the world are all on show in the documentary, during which he delivers a thorough blast to those who have commented on him over the years.
The 47-year-old has a clear message to anyone that has shown any fickleness to him over his epic career, and it is not one that would make the pages of a children’s book.
‘There’s no end to it, there’s no end to it!’ O’Sullivan said of people judging him. ‘”Oh he’s falling, he’s slipping. Oh now he’s winning he’s great! He’s amazing! He’s the greatest player of all time!” Then I’m losing again and it’s, “Oh he’s slipping, are his days numbered?”
‘Oh god, I’ve heard that for 30 years. 30 years! They’re always going to find a problem.
‘I go, “You know what? F**k you! I don’t give a f**k!” That’s how I’ve got with it. Your damned if you do, damned if you don’t, but I don’t give a f**k no more.
‘I’ve taken control of my life and the most important thing is I’m happy.’
The Prime Video documentary comes at an interesting time for the Rocket, who pulled out of last week’s Champion of Champions, opting to work on his mental health after a busy time of playing and travelling between the UK and China.
O’Sullivan started the season in style by winning the Shanghai Masters and has been to the semi-finals of the International Championship and quarter-finals of the Wuhan Open, but a third round run at the English Open is the only result he has achieved on home soil.
He will hope to improve on that at the UK Championship in York, where he gets his campaign underway on Tuesday (28 November) afternoon against a qualifier.
The Rocket has won the UK Championship seven times, more than any other player, last claiming the title in 2018.
Last season’s campaign ended somewhat unceremoniously, though, after surging through two rounds to make the quarter-finals, O’Sullivan was abruptly stopped as he lost 6-0 to Ding Junhui.
