Mark Davis reached his first ranking event final at the 2018 English Open, notably defeating Ronnie O’Sullivan 6-1 in the semi-finals.
An ever-present on the World Snooker Tour since 1991, Davis would narrowly miss out on claiming his maiden ranking event in Crawley following a 9-7 defeat to Stuart Bingham.
Davis has enjoyed particular success as a professional during the second half of his career, having risen to as high as 12th in the world rankings in 2013 and 2014. He reached his first ranking event semi-final at the 2012 Wuxi Classic, a feat that he would also repeat at the Australian Goldfields Open and UK Championship during the same year.
His other notable achievements include a hat-trick of 6-Red World Championship titles, as well as victories at the Masters Qualifying event and World Seniors Championship.
Davis is currently the oldest player to make an officially ratified maximum break, having compiled his second 147 at the age of 44 years and 202 days at the Championship League.
In 2021 he came through the World Championship qualifiers for a record 11th time, with Dominic Dale and John Parrott closest with nine successful qualifications each.
