Bio

Robert Milkins won the first title of his 27-year career at the 2022 Gibraltar Open following a 4-2 victory against Kyren Wilson.

The victory saw him become the oldest first-time winner of a ranking event since Doug Mountjoy at the 1988 UK Championship and came following six previous appearances in a ranking event semi-final, without progressing to the title match.

The strongest spell of his career to date came from 2012-2015 as the Englishman reached a further four semi-finals, including back-to-back runs at the 2013 Wuxi Classic and Australian Goldfields Open tournaments which saw him break into snooker’s top 16 for the first time. He reached a career-high world ranking of number 12 in February 2014.

Milkins has played at the televised stages of the World Championship on eight occasions, winning his opening match three times, twice defeating former world champion Neil Robertson.

He holds the unique distinction of being the only player to have compiled a maximum break during the qualifying stages of the World Championship on two occasions (2006 & 2012).
