Rocket not given top billing

The walk on order for this afternoons games brought Ronnie O'Sullivan into the arena before Shaun Murphy. This is the first time I can remember The Rocket not receiving 'top billing'. Presume it's because World Snooker have stopped treating him like royalty.

He played well too but Murphy does blow hot and cold and certainly suffered from the Ronnie factor. Still he was likely to lose anyhow and it's great for the tournament the his next opponent if he wins will be John Higgins. It's a pretty safe assumption and O'Sullivan is still 9/2 with sponsors Betfred.
