Zhang Anda beat Noppon Saengkham to win the 2009 Asian Under-21 Championship and gain promotion to the main tour.

The Chinese competitor’s first season as a professional during the 2009/10 campaign was unforgettable until the World Championship came around.

Zhang won four qualifying matches to reach the Crucible Theatre on his first attempt, and he then came within a whisker of upsetting Stephen Hendry in Sheffield.

After trailing 4-0, Zhang won nine out of the next 12 frames to move to within the cusp of a famous triumph, only for the seven-time world champion to fight back and snatch victory in a decider.

In the following seasons, Zhang’s performances on the circuit were mostly unspectacular.


After briefly losing his tour status, he regained his spot in 2012 and enjoyed a remarkable eight-year tenure where he failed to break into the world’s top 64.

Aside from qualifying for consecutive World Championships in 2015 and 2016, where he again lost in the last 32, he barely featured on the TV tables at tournaments.

Zhang was again relegated from the tour in 2020 but fought back a year later through his displays on the CBSA China Tour.

Since then, the diminutive figure affectionately known as Mighty Mouse has never looked back.

Upon finally breaking into the top 64 in the world rankings in early-2023, Zhang finally had a foundation to work from.

A few months later, he orchestrated a remarkable run to the final of the English Open where he was narrowly denied a maiden title by Judd Trump.

A month later, Zhang proved his new-found form was no fluke by romping to success in the lucrative International Championship – making a maximum 147 break in the final against Tom Ford.

The £175,000 champion’s cheque took Zhang into the top 16, earning him an unlikely spot at the prestigious Masters in 2024.
