Ronnie and tennis

Ronnie sometimes swops his cue for a tennis racket

Ian Flanagan
Professional tennis player

Ronnie O'Sullivan's a good mate of mine.
He's the world's number one snooker player and I really admire him for that.
I met up with him through another snooker player, Willie Thorne, who has the same agent as me.
We get on well, and although our sports are quite different things like confidence can rub off.
I wouldn't mind his lifestyle though.
Ronnie's earned a lot of money through his sport, but I've already warned him I'll catch up with him one day!
I've been to watch him play a couple of times.
Ronnie put me up in one of his houses when I was playing in the Redbridge Challenger recently.
That's how I got to give him some tennis lessons.
He's not a bad player at all!
He's got a cracking forehand but his backhand is about as good as my potting skills!
Wimbledon ambition
I suppose if you're good at one sport, you're not going to have much of a problem picking up another one.
It's all about having an eye for the ball.
I enjoy playing golf and I have a handicap of 3.4.
But as far as I'm concerned there's just one sport - and that's tennis.
I started playing when I was about six.
I tagged along with my older brother Steven to a coaching clinic being held by former British number one Annabel Croft at our local club.
I haven't looked back since. My ultimate ambition now is to win Wimbledon.
