2019 World Cup Winner (Thailand)
15 (November 2022)
Thailand’s Siripaporn Nuanthakhamjan – also known as Baipat – achieved her greatest success to date on the World Women’s Snooker Tour when she lifted the 2019 Women’s Snooker World Cup alongside compatriot Waratthanun Sukritthanes.
Siripaporn is a two-time ranking event semi-finalist, at the 2019 World Women’s 6-Red Championship and most notably at the 2019 World Women’s Snooker Championship in Thailand, where she defeated England’s Rebecca Kenna in the last eight, before losing 5-3 to eventual champion Reanne Evans.
It was nevertheless a successful week for the 20-year-old, who formed part of the successful Thailand A team which secured six victories culminating in glory against the leading Hong Kong team at the inaugural Women’s Snooker World Cup event.
Baipat also captured the national women’s title in Thailand with victory against Waratthanun Sukritthanes in the final, as well as sensationally reaching the final of the mixed gender equivalent competition, becoming the first woman to do so.
It was not until 2022 that she would become a full-time competitor on tour, reaching quarter-finals at both the Winchester Open and Eden Women’s Masters, ending the year with a career-high world ranking of number 15.
Baipat made her debut on the circuit back at the 2017 World Championship in Singapore, recording a succession of impressive wins against established players Suzie Opacic, So Man Yan and Laura Evans to reach the quarter-finals before losing to defending champion Reanne Evans.
