One of a number of young Chinese players who began to emerge during the 2010s, Fan Zhengyi first turned professional in 2018.

A year earlier, he beat fellow teenager Luo Honghao 7-6 in the final of the IBSF World Under-21 Championship to secure a two-year main tour card.

Most of Fan’s early years on the pro circuit have been unremarkable, barring a brief but memorable breakthrough at the beginning of 2022.

Prior to the German Masters of that year, Fan had never even reached the last 16 of a ranking tournament.

But after qualifying for Berlin, he beat Liam Highfield and Andrew Higginson to feature in his first quarter-final.

Fan duly lost 5-0 to Mark Allen, but he obviously took the confidence forward to the following month’s European Masters.


At the Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes, Fan counted Kyren Wilson, Yan Bingtao, and David Gilbert among his conquests, before a 6-4 defeat of former world champion Graeme Dott helped him to a maiden final.

Coming up against Ronnie O’Sullivan, it was widely considered to be one of the biggest mismatches in the history of title deciders.

But Fan produced the performance of his lifetime to see of the Rocket with a 10-9 scoreline that earned him an £80,000 top prize.

Still only 21, Fan will be hoping to feature more regularly at the business end of competitions in the years to come.
