Kyren Wilson is a three-time ranking event winner who rose to prominence following his breakthrough victory at the 2015 Shanghai Masters.
From Kettering, the Englishman first turned professional for a single season in 2010, before regaining his place on the World Snooker Tour in 2013.
Having reached the quarter-finals of the Shanghai Masters in 2013, the tournament would see him claim his first ranking title two years later as he defeated countryman Judd Trump 10-9 to become the lowest ranked player to win a ranking event since Ding Junhui in 2005.
Wilson has since gone on to add further ranking titles at the 2018 Paul Hunter Classic and 2019 German Masters, as well as the invitational 6-Red World Championship in 2018.
He first qualified for the final stages of the World Championship in 2014 (l. Ricky Walden) and between 2016-2019 established himself as a regular contender by reaching at least the quarter-finals during each of the four years.
His best run came in 2018 when he defeated Matthew Stevens, Jamie Jones and Mark Allen to reach the semi-finals, ultimately losing out 17-13 to four-time champion John Higgins.
In February 2019 he reached a career-high world ranking of number seven and he has twice compiled a 147 break in professional competition.
Away from the baize Wilson is married to Sophie, with the couple having two children together (Finley and Bailey).
