Bio

Gary Wilson reached his first ranking event final at the 2015 China Open, notably defeating home favourite Ding Junhui 6-5 in the semi-finals in Beijing.

Although he lost out 10-2 to Mark Selby in the final, he has since gone on to establish himself as a contender for ranking titles, also reaching the final of the 2021 British Open and progressing to a further four ranking event semi-finals.

His standout performance came at the 2019 World Championship where competing at the Crucible Theatre for only the second time he defeated Luca Brecel, Mark Selby and Ali Carter before losing to eventual champion Judd Trump 17-11 in the last four.

Wilson is a former winner of the World Under-21 and English Amateur Championship tournaments and initially spent two years on the World Snooker Tour from 2004-2006, before regaining his professional place from the start of the 2013/14 season.

He has made two maximum breaks during the course of his career, most recently at the 2017 World Championship qualifiers.
