Robertson started 2013 by attempting to defend his Masters title.

After his hat-trick, Ding reached world number three in the rankings for the first time in his career, before reaching number two just behind Neil Robertson.

Ding played O'Sullivan in the final,[17] becoming the second-youngest player to reach a Masters' final. In He defeated Xiao Guodong in the final by 62 to become the national champion again.[15] On 14 January, Ding made a 147 break in his first-round match against Anthony Hamilton at the Masters,[16] the first maximum break made at the competition since Kirk Stevens' in 1984.[16] The break made Ding the youngest player to make a televised 147a record previously held by Ronnie O'Sullivan[16] and the first Chinese player to make a televised maximum. In January 2007, Ding defeated Cao Xinlong 54 to reach the final of the Chinese National Championship in his home town Yixing, Jiangsu.

Robertson returned to winning ways at the China Open by winning his seventh career ranking event.

Theres no reason to think that Zhao, a heavy scorer when in full flow, cant put it up to the Leicesterman again on this occasion. Thats what a lot of people are wondering as we get set for the 2019 World Snooker Championship. Zhao Xintong is arguably the most improved player of the season. Selbys displays on home soil have predominantly been dismal, reaching the last four of a UK-based ranking event only twice in two years. Zhao gave Selby a stern check in the semi-finals of the China Championship in September the only piece of silverware in Selbys cabinet from a forgettable period. Most of his strong showings have come in China and its against one of that nations highly fancied young stars who he faces first. A lot depends on which Selby actually turns up. Which Mark Selby is going to turn up? The 22 year-old must have been a despondent character twelve months ago when he dropped off the Main Tour but immediately bounced back via Q School and in one season is already in the cusp of breaking into the top 64 in the world rankings. The Jester just lost his coveted world number one position for the first time in more than four years and has looked a shadow of the self that captured three world titles in four years between 2014 and 2017.

He beat Jamie Burnett 102 in the first round, advancing to the last 16 of the World Championship for the fourth consecutive year.[35] He played Stuart Bingham in the second round; at one point he was losing 912 with his opponent needing one frame for victory but Ding made a comeback, winning four consecutive frames to win 1312 and reach the quarter-finals of the world championship for the first time in his career.[36] In his quarter-final with Mark Selby, Ding led 106 after the first two sessions of the match. Ding had a career-best run at the 2011 World Snooker Championship. Ding won the match 1310 to set up a semi-final against Judd Trump.[37] In their semi-final, Ding and Trump were level at 1212 after the third session. In the last session, Trump built momentum and led 1412 but Ding won the next three frames with a 138 break to tie Mark King for highest tournament break and a 119 break. Selby built strong momentum by winning the first four frames of the last session to level at 1010.

Ding Junhui was born in Yixing, Jiangsu, China. He began playing snooker at eight years old after his father, a pool enthusiast, took him along to practice with a professional at a local pool hall. When his father returned, Ding had won the game.[5] Since then, Ding's parents supported his playing skills. When his father went for a toilet break, Ding took the cue and played with the professional.


In May 2013, Robertson made the second official maximum break of his career in the Wuxi Classic qualifiers against Mohamed Khairy.[55] In the main stage of the tournament, he defeated John Higgins 107 in the final to secure his eighth ranking event title.

Another mouthwatering prospect in this bracket of the 2019 World Snooker Championship draw is the match between Mark Allen and Zhou Yuelong. The Northern Irishman has been one of the players of the season, although things have gone a touch quiet since he captured a brace of ranking titles and reached the UK Championship final at the end of the calendar year. Still, while Zhou should represent a decent workout for Allen, its hard to look past the 33 year-old in terms of reaching the last 16 on this occasion. Allen skipped the China Open, an unusual decision that cost him his spot in an easier looking top half of the draw. Zhou is one of the leading protagonists in the huge pack of young Chinese stars that are emerging. To some critics out there, the Chinese players are often unfairly being labeled as failures and underachievers, which is somewhat hilarious considering the majority of them are either teenagers or in their early twenties. The 2009 semi-finalist will be hoping that the advantage to all that will be a fresh outlook ahead of the sports most vigurous examination.

Now 38, Maguire often acts like a player who doesnt really have much belief in his game. Things havent quite worked out that way for the Scot despite once claiming that it would be a failure if he didnt etch his name on the trophy before the age of 30. To seal his debut at the Crucible, the 31 year-old overcame Soheil Vahedi before standout successes over world number 17 Ryan Day and two-time former finalist Matthew Stevens. That said, the five-time ranking event winner has produced a relatively consistent season and will be hoping to improve on a dismal recent Crucible record that reads six first round defeats in the last eight years. Tians next opponent will be Stephen Maguire, who was once thought of as a nailed on world champion. Other qualifiers gained more headlines but one of the most impressive of the lot was Tian Pengfei.

In October 2009, Robertson clinched the 2009 Grand Prix trophy in Glasgow with a 94 win over China's Ding Junhui in the final. His semi-final match with defending champion John Higgins was won on the final black of the deciding frame.

Head-to-Head: Neil Robertson Vs Ding Junhui

He made his breakthrough in the 2006/2007 season.[10] After finishing top of his group at the 2006 Grand Prix's round robin stage (he lost only one match: his opener against Nigel Bond by 23), Robertson then beat Ronnie O'Sullivan 51 in the quarter-finals of the event. He beat Alan McManus 62 in the semis, to reach his first major final, where he faced a fellow first-time finalist, the unseeded Jamie Cope, whom he beat comfortably by 95 to win his first ever professional ranking tournament.[11] The win earned Robertson 60,000, his highest amount of money earned in one tournament. So he went on to the semi-finals, being only the fourth Australian ever to do so in a ranking event.

A former ranking event winner, Gould has the type of game that can trouble any opponent on his day. The Welshman has been enjoying a year-long celebration since then and its fair to say that his game has suffered a touch as a result. Williams has lost the consistency that was a cornerstone of his game last season. Against Martin Gould, Williams probably could have received an easier opening challenge. Yet, its been a miserable time on the circuit for the Pinner Potter of late and he has been in danger of dropping outside the worlds top 32. Mark Williams produced an unbelievable performance twelve months ago to surprise the pack and claim a third world crown, 15 years after his last success. As always, theres great expectation in learning who the defending champion will receive in the first round draw. Gould famously led Neil Robertson 11-5 in the second round in 2010, only for the Australian to fight back and proceed to capture his one and only world title. Goulds performances at the Crucible havent been notable since and the experience, not to mention cool head, of Williams should prove to be the vital difference.
