Ding Junhui is a professional snooker player from China. He is China’s most successful player ever, having become only the second teenager, after John Higgins, to win three ranking titles, including being the first player from outside the British Isles to win the prestigious UK Championship.

In the 2013/2014 snooker season he equalled Stephen Hendry’s record of winning five ranking titles in the same season. As a prolific break-builder, Ding has compiled more than 370 century breaks during his career including five maximums, and is the only Asian player to have held the world number one position.

In December 2006, he enrolled at Shanghai Jiao Tong University to study Business Administration and Management.

He lives in the UK during snooker season. He is good friends with fellow countryman Liang Wenbo and they are training partners in the Sheffield World Snooker Academy.
