UK Championship (Round 2)
Welcome to neilrobertson.net, the official web site of Australian snooker professional Neil Robertson.

In 2010, Neil collected two professional titles: the World Championship and the World Open. He also joined an elite group of just 8 professional players (at the time) to have held the #1 world ranking, since rankings officially commenced in 1975.

In 2011, Neil added to his trophy cabinet with PTC6, the first professional tournament ever held in Poland, and PTC8 the inaugural Alex Higgins International Trophy held in Ireland.

In 2012, Neil claimed his first Masters title in January, becoming just the 11th professional player to have won both the World Championship and The Masters. He was also Runner-Up in the Grand Finals of the Players Tour Championship, claimed the ET2 title in Gdynia, Poland, and was Runner-Up in the inaugural International Championship in Chengdu, China.

In 2013, Neil was the Runner-Up at The Masters, Runner-Up at the PTC Grand Final, and won the China Open and Wuxi Classic. Neil's first ranking victory in China also made him the most successful professional from outside the UK. Neil was also Runner-Up in the 3rd Australian Goldfields Open, and won his first UK Championship.

In 2014, Neil was the Runner-Up at the China Open, won the Wuxi Classic, and was Runner-Up at the Australian Open.
