Bio

Fan Zhengyi achieved a career-breakthrough at the 2022 European Masters when he defeated Ronnie O’Sullivan 10-9 to win his first ranking event title as a 750-1 outsider.

Ranked in 80th position at the start of the tournament and having reached just one quarter-final previously, Fan recorded a string of impressive wins against Kyren Wilson, Yan Bingtao, David Gilbert and Graeme Dott to reach the final, before stunning six-time world champion O’Sullivan to lift the trophy.

He had previously reached the last eight of the German Masters just weeks earlier and in claiming the European Masters title became the fifth player from mainland China to win a ranking title.

Fan turned professional for the first time in 2018 following his victory at the World Under-21 Championship, regaining his tour card two years later by successfully coming through Q School 2020.
