Ronnie O'Sullivan to play in World Grand Prix in Wales
Welsh Open champion Ronnie O'Sullivan will compete at the World Grand Prix ranking event in Wales next month.
O'Sullivan, 40, qualified for the tournament after his 9-5 victory over Neil Robertson in Cardiff on Sunday.
The World Grand Prix will take place in Llandudno, north Wales, from 8 to 13 March.
O'Sullivan suffered defeated in last year's final, losing 10-7 to Judd Trump.
After the World Grand Prix, just two ranking events - the Players Championship and China Open - will remain before the season-ending World Championship in Sheffield.
Englishman O'Sullivan recently said he is "not really bothered" about the Crucible event and will "treat it like a vacation".
