The German Masters represents the second World Snooker Tour event in mainland Europe this season - but there's a notable absence in Berlin.


Ronnie O'Sullivan has withdrawn from the event at the Tempodrom. He said: "I love the event and fans in Germany but I have to make my health and wellbeing the priority.

"It's been a tiring and challenging season for me so far, despite how it may seem with the tournament wins, so hope you understand."

The absence of the hottest player on tour this season, with two of the triple crown titles to his name, is a blow - but offers the opportunity for the chasing pack to gain momentum as the season leads toward The Crucible in Sheffield.

Reigning champion Ali Carter will hope to make the most of his return to the German capital after defeating Tom Ford 10-3 in last year's showpiece match.
