SHQ Stars: ★★★★★★
It took Neil Robertson three attempts at turning professional before he was finally able to make it stick.
In 1998 and again in 2000, the Australian tried and failed to deliver on the Main Tour, but everything changed after winning the World Under-21 Championship in 2003.
With hardly any money to his name, Robertson gave it one final crack at the big time and never looked back.
In the two decades since, the Thunder from Down Under has triumphed in practically every notable tournament the game has to offer.
Robertson won his maiden ranking title at the 2006 Grand Prix and tasted victory in the subsequent five ranking event finals he competed in as well.
That sequence included the 2010 World Snooker Championship, when a dogged display helped him overcome former champion Graeme Dott in the title decider.
Robertson has added a brace of Masters crowns and a hat-trick of UK Championship titles to his tally since then.
MORE PLAYER PROFILES:
Known for his confident demeanour and a ferocious break-building ability, other memorable successes have been sealed in prestigious comps such as the Champion of Champions and the Tour Championship.
Such has been Robertson’s consistency over the years that he’s basically been an ever-present in the top four of the world rankings, with only a couple of minor dips in form.
Indeed, the Melbourne man boasts an incredible record of having collected silverware in each calendar year between 2006 and 2022.
During the 2013/14 snooker season, Robertson became the first player to compile a century of centuries in a single term – ending the year with an amazing tally of 103.
While many already acknowledge Robertson as an all-time great, there are some who still question his record at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield.
That he has been unable to add to that sole world glory from 2010 is the only stain on an otherwise spotless CV.
