2019 Australian Open Champion
3 (October 2019)
Since making her tour debut back in 2017, Thailand’s Nutcharut Wongharuthai has emerged as one of the very best female players in the world.
Her talent was evident from the very beginning as she made the event-high break of 90 at the World Women’s Championship in Singapore as a 17-year-old.
During the following two years she would reach four ranking event finals, most notably at the 2019 World Championship in her home country, ultimately losing out to leading star Reanne Evans on each occasion.
Her maiden title would come at the 2019 Australian Women’s Open however as following a 4-2 victory against Ng On Yee in the final, she became the first player other than Evans or Ng to win a world ranking event in over two and a half years.
Her success was enough to see her climb to a career-high ranking of number three. In 2018 became World Women’s Under-21 champion in Leeds.
Nutcharut is also known for becoming the first female player to make a verified 147 break during a practice match against Waratthanun Sukritthanes at the Hi-End Snooker Club in March 2019.
