Ronnie O'Sullivan "buzzing to be playing" snooker

Ronnie O'Sullivan admits that he is "just buzzing to be playing" snooker ahead of his World Championship final.

Ronnie O'Sullivan has admitted that he is raring to go in Sunday's World Championship final.

'The Rocket' eased past Barry Hawkins 17-7 to reach the showpiece final at The Crucible, where he will face either Neil Robertson or Mark Selby.

"I'm just buzzing to be playing and enjoying it," O'Sullivan told World Snooker. "To get to three finals in a row having already won two - if you'd have told me that three years ago it would've never entered my thoughts that I could do it.

"To have got such a comfortable result against Barry is great for me. I hadn't played for two months going into this tournament so I'd got a bit bored of practising, but that's because I didn't enter any tournaments so that's my own fault.

"As each match goes on you do feel like you get into it. I've still got one more match to play so I can't afford to get all excited. It's all about the final for me on Sunday and Monday now."

Robertson currently trails Selby 12-10 in the second of the semi-finals.
