Ding Junhui - 丁俊晖 

'The Dragon'

2x Snooker UK Champion

& Masters Snooker Champion

Ding Junhui (Chinese: 丁俊晖) was born 1 April 1987 in Yixing, Wuxi, Jiangsu. Ding Junhui is China's most successful player ever, having become only the second teenager, after John Higgins, to win three ranking titles.

Ding Junhui has compiled more than 200 competitive century breaks. He has made five 147 maximum breaks in professional competition. The first at the 2007 Masters, which made him the youngest player to have made a televised 147 at the age of 19 years and 7 months. The second came at the 2008 UK Championship.

Ding Junhui has won four ranking titles in his career, possibly his most famous was in 2005 when as a wildcard he beat Stephen Hendry 9-5 in the China open with an estimated televised audience of 110 million in China, thus cementing him as one of China's biggest sports stars.

Since then Ding Junhui has won two UK Championship crowns and in 2011 he beat fellow Asian pro Marco Fu 10-4 to capture his first Masters title.
