Neil said:

I’m very excited to be working with Grovesnooker again. I know Django very well and he has great experience managing top players.

Neil World Champion 2010

Neil Robertson (born 11 February 1982 in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia) is an Australian professional snooker player and the current World No 1. Robertson is the only Australian to have won a ranking event, in fact, he has won 9 of them up to now, including the World Championship in 2010 and the UK Championship in 2013. He also won the Masters in 2012.

The 2013/2014 season was a particularly successful one for Neil.

Neil UK Champion 2013 completes the triple crown

Neil was the World n°1 player for the best part of the season. He finished the season as World n°3.
He won the Wuxi Classic 2013 and the UK Championship 2013. This last victory made him a member of the select small group of players having won the “triple crown”. Neil was also a finalist in the Australian Open 2013 and the China Open 2014. He reached the semi-finals at the World Championship 2014, narrowly losing to the eventual winner Mark Selby. He also broke the record of centuries made over a season – he made 102 of them! The magical 100th century, the “ton of tons”, came during his quarter-finals match at the World Championship.

Neil started the 2014/15 season very strongly, winning the Wuxi Classic 2014 and being runner-up to Judd Trump in the Australian Open. But after that it was, by his standards, a rather disappointing one. He reached the final in the Masters, losing to Shaun Murphy, and won the Gdynia Open 2015 but didn’t go past the QF in any full ranking event. Despite this, he finished the season as n°3.

The 2015/16 season was a bit of a mixed bag for Neil. He won two big events in the first half of the season, the Champion of Champions and the UK Championship, but the second half was a bit disappointing. He made another final, runner-up to Ronnie O’Sullivan in the Welsh Open in Cardiff, but suffered early exits in the last three tournaments of the season, in particular, he lost to qualifier Michael Holt in the first round in the World Championship.

The 2016/17 season started well for Neil as he won the season opener, the Riga Masters 2016, bringing his tally of ranking titles to 12. He also reached the semi-finals of the World Open 2016 and the European Masters 2016. In the latter, he lost by 6-0 to Ronnie O’Sullivan and somehow it derailed his season. Indeed after that, his results were disappointing by his high standards. He lost in round 1 of the UK Championship, as defending Champion. After losing 13–11 to Marco Fu in the second round of the World Championship in a performance he described as very poor, Neil vowed to play with more passion and more aggressively next season. Doing this, he hopes to improve his game and make it more interesting for the viewing public.

2017/18 was a difficult season for Neil who opened up about the mental health issues his partner has been suffering over the last years. Such circumstances make it difficult to focus 100% on snooker, quite understandably. Neil suffered a number of early exits but, taking perspective, still expressed satisfaction at the end of the season. Privately things are slowly getting better, his appetite for snooker is back and, despite the circumstances, he managed to win two titles: the Hong Kong Masters 2017 and the Scottish Open 2017.

2018/19 was a great season for Neil Robertson, with three ranking titles – Riga Masters 2018, Welsh Open 2019, and China Open 2019 – and three more ranking finals – at the International Championship 2018, the Players Championship 2019 and the Tour Championship 2019. Privately it was also a good season: Neil got officially engaged with his long time partner, Mille, and, in March 2019, the couple welcomed their second child, a little girl named Penelope. Neil finished the season ranked n°4.

2019/20 was similar to the previous season for Neil. Again he won three big titles: the 2019 Champion of Champions (invitational), the 2020 European Masters, and the 2020 World Grand Prix. He was extremely consistent all season, losing just once in the first round and otherwise getting to the last 32 or better in every ranking tournament he played.

Neil won two big titles in the 2020/21 season: the 2020 UK Championship and the 2021 Tour Championship, beating Judd Trump and Ronnie O’Sullivan respectively in the finals. He also reached the final of the 2020 Champion of Champions. It was however also a season marked by a number of early exits and withdrawals. In an interview, Neil admitted that he had struggled mentally with the covid-19 circumstances and in particular that he didn’t cope well with the long separation from his family in Australia.

Neil Robertson had a successful 2021/22 season. He won four big titles: the 2021 English Open, the 2022 Masters, the 2022 Players Championship, and the 2022 Tour Championship. He also reached the final of the 2021 World Grand Prix. The season ended in relative disappointment though. Neil was tipped as one of the favorites for the 2022 Crucible but narrowly lost in the last 16 to Jack Lisowski (13-12). Neil was voted “WST Player of the Year”

Neil Robertson had a rather disappointing 2022/23 season by his usually very high standard as he failed to reach the final in any event, other than the invitational 2022 “Mixed Doubles” which he won with Mink Nucharut. It wasn’t a disastrous season by any means though as Neil got to the semi-finals at the 2022 Hong Kong Masters, the 2022, the 2022 Northern Ireland Open, the 2022 Scottish Open, the 2022 English Open, and the 2023 Championship League Snooker. Neil however will not be happy with the way he ended his season as, once again he failed to perform at the Crucible, losing in the last 16 to Jak Jones, a qualifier. Neil finished the season ranked 6th in the World.

For Neil Robertson the 2023/24 season was a nightmarish one. He reached two semi-finals: at the (invitational) 2023 Shanghai Masters where he lost to Luca Brecel, and at the 2024 World Open where he lost to Ding. Other than that he didn’t go past the last 16 in any individual event. Because of these poor results Neil had to qualify for the World Championship and failed to do that as well: he lost in a decider to Jamie Jones in the last qualifying round. This was the first time since 2004 that Neil missed out at the Crucible.As a result Neil finished the season ranked nr 28,

    Dear Neil,

    I am the President of the Twin Towns Services Club Snooker Club located at Tweed Heads NSW Australia.

    The immediate past President of the Club, Des Turner was awarded an OAM in June for his services to the sport of snooker. Des was Mr Snooker in the far north coast region of NSW and southern Queensland for well over 30 years.

    We are planning a celebratory dinner in February and to be attended by many snooker dignitaries and enthusiasts and to add to the occasion would it be possible for you to provide a congratulatory email to be read out at the function.

    Des wast Club President for about 35 years, Far North Coast Snooker Association Secretary for about the same period, convenor of Referees in Queensland for about 20 years and has been awarded Life Membership of the Queensland Billiards & Snooker Association as well as Twin Towns Services Club.

    There has not been many snooker or billiards players awarded such an honour, Eddie Charlton was awarded an MBE and possibly Walter Lindrum but I am not certain of the latter.

    As the most prominent Australian player, former World Champion and World No 1 it would be greatly appreciated if you could forward an email as requested. I am certain it will hold pride of place with Des’ alongside his OAM.

    Trusting you may be able to help a fellow snooker enthusiast.

    Hi Neil,

    I have been a big fan of yours since you were a young lad just starting out on the world snooker stage and have followed you ever since and watched you progress through the ranks to the top. You have given the game so much dedication and commitment over the years and have achieved so much as well as bringing your fans some truly memorable snooker moments. It is always great seeing young players do well and you have shown that anything is possible if you work hard and give your time to something you truly enjoy.

    I would like to thank you for all the tension and excitement you have brought to snooker and for the way you have conducted yourself from coming into the game to the present day, you are the ultimate professional and always one to watch in any snooker tournament.

    Never lose that Aussie sense of humour Aussie determination to achieve and succeed in the sport you love as you bring your fans so much watching pleasure in every game you play and keep us hooked with every shot you take.

    Was gutted that you didn’t make it to the final after playing Judd Trump at Alexandra Palace (19/01/2019) but I thought you played well and i’m sure the pressure was on you both. You and Judd in the same game what more could an ardent snooker fan ask for? You were are both winners and true professionals of the game!

    All the very best from one of your biggest fans!
