Judd Trump was the defending champion after defeating Neil Robertson 9–6 in the 2020 final.[3]

Shaun Murphy made the sixth maximum break of his career in the first qualifying round against Chen Zifan.

Judd Trump met Jack Lisowski in the final, a repeat of the previous ranking event final, the World Grand Prix. It was the first time that the same two players had met in successive ranking event finals since John Higgins and Steve Davis met in the Welsh Open and International Open finals at the start of 1995.[4] Trump won by 9 frames to 2, becoming the first player ever to successfully defend the title.[5]
