Ronnie O'Sullivan has reiterated his criticism of the Crawley venue used to stage the English Open.The world number two survived a potential shock first-round exit as he beat former roofer Jamie O'Neill 4-3.O'Sullivan, 43, last year described the K2 Leisure Centre as "a hellhole" and feels little has changed since."Every day in Crawley is a day lost in my life," O'Sullivan joked with reporters as he confirmed he would not be spending his day off in West Sussex.The five-time world champion was also critical of the open nature of the draw for the tournament as he was paired against world number 105 O'Neill."I just don't enjoy that type of dynamic to a match," he said. "I'd much rather play someone who's got as much to lose as I have."When you're playing people who are just happy to be there, it's their big occasion and they just go out and smash the balls all over the place, there's no point trying to play the right shot."Every time you do, they just play the wrong shot.
