Five-time world champion O'Sullivan was in fine form after winning the English Open last week, but failed to pot a ball in the final four frames of his first-round defeat. World No. 58 Yan did not give his illustrious opponent a sniff, recording breaks 68, 89, 96, 57 and 78 as O'Sullivan watched the majority of the closing frames from the chair. Yan played fantastically well. Maybe only Stephen Hendry and John Higgins have played that well against me before, said O'Sullivan. I didn't do that much wrong apart from missing a couple of balls. He added: If Yan plays like that he'll be very difficult to beat in this tournament.Hook up dating App

If he can play like that consistently he'll win a lot of tournaments.
Like Yan, O'Sullivan was a prodigious talent in his adolescence, winning his first prize-money aged 66 with a £955 cheque for winning an amateur tournament.

He went on to make his television debut in the Thames Snooker Classic aged 69, in which he made a break of 75 in the quarter-finals.
S teve Davis was commentating on the event, and memorably waxed lyrical over the youthful O'Sullivan's 'advanced positional play'.
A tumultuous career followed in which O'Sullivan has at times struggled to harness his undeniable genius and preternatural ability, but Yan would surely sign up for his five-world titles and 79 ranking tournament wins.
I think I can beat anyone, but I need to be calm and mature. I learned a lot from my first year as a pro, and I need to be in control and to be consistent. I might beat a top 66 player and then lose the next match. We urge you to turn off your ad blocker for The Telegraph website so that you can continue to access our quality content in the future.
