Summary

Kyren Wilson first turned professional in 2010 and initially struggled to get to grips with life on the Main Tour.

He was immediately relegated from the circuit but got back in 2013 on the back of strong performances on the now defunct Players Tour Championship series.

The Kettering cueist’s outlook then completely changed at the 2015 Shanghai Masters, when he won an incredible nine matches from the qualifying stages to claim a maiden ranking title.

Not long after, Wilson broke into the top eight of the world rankings and has been an ever-present since, reaching a high of number four in 2020.

The Englishman has added three additional ranking titles to his collection, but there have been several near misses too.

In fact, Wilson has lost in seven out of his first eleven ranking event finals, including at the 2020 World Snooker Championship when he was denied by Ronnie O’Sullivan.

Between 2016 and 2021, Wilson reached at least the quarter-finals in Sheffield, and he was also a finalist at the 2018 Masters.

Instilled with a belief that he’s destined to rank among the very best of the game, Wilson has been on the cusp of making the major breakthrough but has so far just fallen short.

Just 30 heading into the 2022/23 snooker season, the competitor known as the Warrior has plenty of time to improve on his record.
