Ding Jun Hui, who turned 18 just this week, beat the legendary Stephen Hendry 9-5 in the China Open final, Ding was 4-1 down but turned the final around, picking up the £30,000 check (around $55,000) and the title of 2005 China Open Champion.

It is a shame though that he will not be participating in the 2005 World Snooker Championships as he lost in the final qualifying match for Sheffield!
