O’Sullivan said: “The record has never been heavy, I don’t bother about the record.
“I’ve never done well if I’m going to do something. I always try to enjoy what I do.
“These 17 days he was by my side. With Judd, we all knew he wasn’t playing his best, but as a champion, he gets to the finals and still almost wins.
“I knew I had to do my best for a long time. I knew it would be impossible to play snooker for four seasons.
“This afternoon’s session was probably the toughest in 20 years. I froze. So it’s great to win and be in a great match with a great player.”
Trump congratulated O’Sullivan and described him as “the best player of all time”.
He said: “I want to congratulate Ronnie very much. It is a pleasure for me to share the table with them.
“It’s an amazing achievement. Best player ever. He keeps getting better and better. His determination and dedication, you can see it there. He barely missed a ball in 31 frames. He’s the best in the tournament.” was a player.
“I’m glad I made a match out of it. I wouldn’t be surprised if he breaks the record now and turns eight. The level in this tournament was a different class. There just seemed like a winner.”
