Biography

 

Ding shot to fame in 2002. At just fifteen years old he first of all won the Asian Under 21 championship.

 

He followed that up with a resounding 8-1 win over Singapore's Keith E Boon in the final of the Asian Championship, and to prove that this was no fluke, in August he travelled to Latvia and came home as the new IBSF World under 21 champion.

 

He has since added the Snooker singles Gold Medal in the Asian Games and finished as a semi finalist in the 2002 IBSF World Championship.

 

In 2003 he was unable to progress much in Asian snooker as both the Asian championship and the under 21 event had to be cancelled due to the SARS virus crisis.

 

He defended his World Under 21 title, reaching the semi finals, before losing out to Australian Main Tour player Neil Robertson.

 

The WSA awarded Ding a Main Tour concession in recognition of his outstanding 2002-3 results and he'll started his professional career in September 2003.

 

He turned more heads in February 2004 when he made his debut in the Masters at Wembley and knocked out Joe Perry and narrowly failed to beat Stephen Lee.

 

Since then he's had to get used to a new cue after baggage handlers smashed it. In the 2004-5 season he beat both Tony Drago and Jimmy White to reached the last 16 of the British Open and he got through to the televised stages of the 2005 Welsh Open losing to John Parrott. In January 2005 he made his professional high break of 141 against Gary Wilkinson, during the Irish Masters qualifiers and he equalled that feat at the Wembley Masters.

 

Ding is based at the Academy in Wellingborough, when in the UK, and he's a regular practice partner of Peter Ebdon, who enthuses about his skills and potential.
