In addition, Selby, the four-time World Championship champion who fell behind 2-7 in the first stage, is at risk of being out + retiring, and if he finally loses to O'Connor in the first round of the World Championships, the disheartened world champion Selby may retire, as Selby has previously expressed.

According to recent reports in the British media, world champion Selby is considering retiring, and before the start of this year's World Championships, Selby told reporters: "I will participate in the upcoming World Championships, but if I still maintain this form, I can't be 100% sure that I will continue my snooker career." Because if I can't enjoy the game, then what's the point of me going to keep going? I always say that when I don't love snooker anymore, I don't hesitate to announce my retirement, no matter what my world ranking is. I can't stand such a bad game. ”
