Neil Robertson claimed his second Welsh Open title on Sunday night (Picture: WALES NEWS SERVICE) Neil Robertson won his second title of the season as he triumphed at the Welsh Open on Sunday night, keeping up a thoroughly impressive record in the process. The Welsh Open victory continues the remarkable record of winning a ranking tournament every single year since his very first title in 2006. The 37-year-old lifted the Grand Prix title in 2006 and has gone on to win the World Championship, UK Championship, World Open and now the Welsh Open twice, among other big ranking competitions. 'I've won a ranking event every year since 2006 so when I get into a new calendar year I'm thinking, just win one now and get it out of the way,' said Robertson. The £70,000 first prize handed out for winning in Cardiff will see Robertson jump up to #8 in the world rankings from his current spot of #10.
Some will state that Robertson has won 15 ranking titles, but he also has four minor-ranking titles such as the Warsaw Classic and the Alex Higgins International Trophy in 2011, which have kept up his streak of winning each year since '06.

This year, in Charlotte, Anthony Hamilton gave his own take on the "Star Spangled Banner." Because 12 months after Fergie sang one of the most talked about (not in a good way, for the most part) national anthems before the start of the 2018 NBA All-Star Game, we had Anthony Hamilton sing Sunday night's anthem and it was immediately loved by a lot of fans. Hamilton is a 48-year-old Charlotte native who is best known for his platinum-selling album Comin' from Where I'm From in 2003 which had the hit song "Charlene" on it. Give it up for the hometown hero, as North Carolina native Anthony Hamilton brought heart, country and soul, to the NBA All-Star Game with a powerful rendition of the American national anthem! Two years removed from the controversy that relocated the All-Star game to New Orleans, the game kicked off on Feb. 17 at the Spectrum Center, but not before Anthony Hamilton, 48, performed "The Star-Spangled Banner." In his shiny gold suit coat, the Charlotte native and 17-time Grammy nominee hit the court to perform the U.S. national anthem, and it was just as soulful as expected.
Sunday marked the biggest match of Riott's career, but she didn't go into it without at least some knowledge of what Rousey brings to the table. In October, Rousey and Riott faced each other three times over the course of a week in different types of matches. Rousey and Riott went their separate ways after that, but they clashed again Sunday in a match that had major WrestleMania implications. It seemed as though Rousey was more focused on Lynch and Flair during Monday's episode of Raw after WWE Chairman Vince McMahon suspended The Man for 60 days and announced that The Queen would challenge for the Raw Women's Championship on The Grandest Stage of Them All. Riott flew under the radar because of that, but Rousey still managed to take care of business and keep her WrestleMania match intact. With Riott seemingly out of the picture, the focus will now shift solely toward WrestleMania and whether Rousey will face Charlotte, or if Lynch will find a way to get herself added back into the match.
