Career


Early career

Marco Fu was born on 8 January 1978 in British Hong Kong.[4] He began playing snooker at age nine, but did not do so regularly until he was 15.[5] Fu migrated to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada with his parents at age 12. After his high school graduation at age 18, Hong Kong Billiard Sports Control Council Co. Ltd. President Joseph Lo invited him to return to Hong Kong to begin his career as a professional snooker player.[5] Before turning professional, Fu won the IBSF World Snooker Championship and the IBSF World Under-21 Snooker Championship, both in 1997.[5]

After winning these tournaments, Fu turned professional for the 1998–99 snooker season.[5] In his first season as a professional, he was ranked 377th in the world.[6] He reached the final of the Grand Prix, beating Ronnie O'Sullivan 5–2 and then Peter Ebdon 5–3.[6] Stephen Lee defeated him 2–9 in the final. During the rest of the 1998–99 season, Fu qualified for four more ranking tournaments,[7] including the 1999 World Snooker Championship, winning four qualifying matches before losing to James Wattana 8–10 in the first round of the main draw.[7] He was voted World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association (WPBSA) Newcomer of the Year and WSA Young Player of the Year in 1999.[8][6]

Rise through the rankings (1999–2003)

In the 1999–00 season, with Fu now ranked 35th in the world,[9] he received automatic entry into the main draw of most of the ranking tournaments. Although he failed to repeat the success of reaching the final of the Grand Prix, he made a run to the quarter-finals before losing to Allister Carter. Other achievements of note include reaching the semi-finals of the 2000 Malta Grand Prix and the Scottish Open.[10] Following a dramatic rise, in the 2000–01 season Fu was ranked 15th in the world, his first appearance in the top 16.[11][12] However, a succession of defeats and a first round loss at the 2001 World Snooker Championship to Chris Small, saw him fall out of the top 16 for next season.[13] In the 2001–02 season Fu's best result was a last 16 appearance at the LG Cup.[14] He failed to qualify for three ranking events, including the 2002 World Snooker Championship, and, as a result, his ranking fell to 27 for the following season.[15]

Prior to the 2003 Welsh Open, his best result of the 2002–03 season was reaching the third round of the 2002 UK Championship in December 2002, where Ronnie O'Sullivan defeated him 9–7.[16] However, at the Welsh Open in February, Fu defeated Stephen Lee 5–0 in the second round and beat Ronnie O'Sullivan 5–3 in the quarter-finals before losing his semi-final 4–6 to Stephen Hendry, who went on to win the title.[17] Going into the 2003 World Snooker Championship three months later, after first round losses at the European and Scottish Opens,[18][19] he drew world number one Ronnie O'Sullivan in the first round.[20]

Snooker Scene later described the match between O'Sullivan and Fu as "one of the greatest upsets in the history of the game". Fu held a 6–3 overnight lead and, despite O'Sullivan making a maximum break, Fu won 10–6.[20] Fu subsequently eliminated Alan McManus 13–7 in the second round,[21] before losing 7–13 to Stephen Lee in his quarter-final match.[22] Later that year, Fu won his first professional title at the invitational Premier League, beating Mark Williams 9–5 in the final.[23]

First ranking tournament title (2004–2008)

As a result of his run to the quarter-finals of the World Championship the previous season, Fu climbed to number 19 in the world rankings for the 2003–04 season.[24] He qualified for all the ranking tournaments except the World Championship. His best result included a third round loss to Michael Holt in the LG Cup and reaching the semi-finals of the Welsh Open, beating Liu Song, Matthew Stevens, Ken Doherty and Stephen Hendry before succumbing to Steve Davis.[25][26] Fu finished the season ranked 16th in the world.[27]

The following season was less consistent, although Fu qualified for all the tournaments except the Malta Cup. His best result was a quarter-final loss to Ding Junhui at the China Open.[28] He finished the season ranked 25, falling seven places.[29] The 2005–06 season did not end any better. A series of first round defeats saw him provisionally drop out of the top 32.[30] However, he had a good run at the 2006 World Championship, beating three seeded players—Alan McManus 10–3, Stephen Maguire 13–4, and Ken Doherty 13–10.[31][32] He reached the semi-finals where he lost to the 2002 world champion Peter Ebdon 16–17.[33] In that match, Fu was 9–15 down with only one session left to play, but won seven out of the next eight frames to send the match into the deciding frame, which Ebdon eventually won.[30] This run enabled him to stay in the world top 32 for next season, ranked 22.[34]

Marco Fu after winning the 2007 Grand Prix

In the 2006–07 season he did not play in the 2006 UK Championship so he could play in the 2006 Asian Games, where he won two medals. At the 2007 World Snooker Championship, Fu lost 3–10 to Anthony Hamilton in the first round.[35] His best result during the season was a quarter-final run in the China Open, where he lost to Ronnie O'Sullivan.[36] Following a first round loss at the Shanghai Masters, and nine years after his first appearance in a ranking final at the 1998 Grand Prix, Fu won the 2007 Grand Prix—his first victory in a ranking event. After defeating the reigning world champion John Higgins in the first knock-out round 5–4, Liu Song 5–0 in the quarter-finals. and Gerard Greene 6–5 in the semi-finals, he faced Ronnie O'Sullivan in the final.[37] After falling 3–4 behind after the first session, he won 9–6, with a break of 76 in the final frame.[38] He later reached the quarter-finals of the 2007 UK Championship, losing to Mark Selby and the semi-finals of the 2008 Masters, losing to Stephen Lee.[39]

He lost against Peter Lines 3–9 at the 2009 UK Championship,[50] Peter Ebdon 2–6 at the Masters[51] and Andrew Higginson 2–5 at the Welsh Open.[52] However, Fu won the 2010 Championship League by beating Mark Allen 3–2 in the final.[53] Fu also reached the quarter-finals of the 2010 China Open, where he lost 1–5 against Mark Williams.[54] At the last ranking event of the season, the World Championship Fu faced Martin Gould and led 5–4 after the first session.[55] Ultimately Fu lost the match 9–10.[56]

Masters finalist (2010–15)

At the Welsh Open he lost in the first round 1–4 to Ronnie O'Sullivan and lost in the first round of the World Open following a 3–5 defeat to John Higgins. Fu had earlier made the second maximum break of his career during the final qualifying round for the World Open in a match against Matthew Selt.[68] Fu's best performance of the season came at the 2011 UK Championship.

In Australia, Fu saw a return to form as he beat Joe Perry, Jamie Burnett and Stephen Lee all by 5–1 scorelines to reach the semi-finals of the Australian Open.[72] There he lost 2–6 to Peter Ebdon and said after the match that his goal for the season was to reclaim a top 16 place.[73] At the International Championship he secured wins over Martin Gould and Mark Davis to reach the quarter-finals.[74] Fu let a 3–1 lead against Shaun Murphy slip to lose 4–6.[75] Before he played Mark Allen in the first round of the 2012 UK Championship, Allen reiterated his views that Fu had cheated in a prior match. Fu himself denied the claims and went on to defeat Allen 6–3. Allen received a three-month suspended ban for his comments.[76] In the second round Fu lost 4–6 to Matthew Stevens.[77] He reached his first ranking event final since 2008 at the German Masters by beating Ricky Walden, Peter Lines and Matthew Stevens all 5–3.

Later career (2015–present)

After exiting the first two ranking events of the 2015–16 season at the first round stage, Fu met David Gilbert in the quarter-finals of the International Championship but lost 5-6 after leading 4–2.[105] He won the non-ranking General Cup by beating Mark Williams 7–3.[106] Fu eliminated Shaun Murphy in the fourth round of the 2015 UK Championship for the second year in a row.[107] Liang Wenbo opened their quarter-final match with three successive centuries, but Fu fought back to send the tie to a deciding frame which he lost.[108] En route to the final of the Gibraltar Open, Fu made a maximum break in the second round against Sam Baird.[109] Fu won his first title carrying ranking points since the 2013 Australian Open by eliminating Michael White 4–1 in the final.[110] In the 2016 World Championship, Fu saw off Peter Ebdon, Anthony McGill and Barry Hawkins to reach the semi-final for the second time but eventually lost to Selby 17–15.[111]

After enduring a difficult start to the 2016–17 season where he failed to get beyond the second round of the first eight ranking events, Fu came back from 5–2 down to defeat Jamie Jones in the quarter-finals of the UK Championship.[112] Leading 5–4 against Ronnie O'Sullivan in the semi-finals, he lost the final two frames to lose 5–6.[113] Before the end of 2016, Fu reached the final of the Scottish Open, with his closest game being a 4–3 victory over Neil Robertson in the fourth round; Fu did not lose more than a frame in his other five matches. In the final against John Higgins, trailing 1–4, he won eight frames in a row to win the match 9–4. Throughout the tournament, Fu made 11 centuries and 21 more breaks over 50 in seven matches.[114][115]

At the 2017 Masters, he played Judd Trump in the opening round and won 6–5.[116] He beat Mark Allen in the quarter-finals 6–2 and then lost 6–4 to O'Sullivan in the semi-finals.[117] Fu also played in the semi-finals of the World Grand Prix and was 4–3 up on Ryan Day, who needed four snookers in the eighth frame. He got them to square the match and then overcame Fu 4–6.[118] At the Players Championship, Fu defeated Anthony McGill 5–1 and Mark Selby 5–2, before coming back from 5–3 down against Ding Junhui to win 6–5 and reach the final.[119] From 5–2 up on Trump, Fu lost six frames in a row and would be beaten 8-10.[120] Fu had poor start to his first round match at the World Championship as he was 7–1 down to Luca Brecel, though he made a century to be 7–2 behind overnight. He won the first two frames upon the resumption of play and eventually levelled at 8–8, later winning 10–9.[121] The second round saw Fu play Neil Robertson, They tied at 4–4, 8–8, and 10-10. Fu lost frame 21 but won the next three to win 13–11.[122] Fu was then defeated 13–3 by defending and eventual champion Selby, losing with a session to spare.[123] However, he was ranked sixth after the event, the highest Fu has ever finished a season in his career.[124]

The 2017–18 season saw Marco Fu getting off to another difficult start, as he could not reach the quarter final of any ranking event before the turn of the year. Two weeks after suffering a 0–6 defeat against Ronnie O'Sullivan in the first round of the Masters, Fu revealed that he had undergone laser eye surgery in December to treat retinal degeneration and floaters in his dominant left eye.[125] Fu indicated he regretted taking part in the Masters while still recovering from the surgery. He also announced that he would not enter any more tournaments before making a full recovery and regaining his old level in training.[126] He made his return at the 2018 World Snooker Championship where he lost to Lyu Haotian 10–5.[citation needed]

Following the eye surgery, Fu only reached the quarter-finals of the 2018 World Open, where he lost to David Gilbert,[127] and the 2020 European Masters.[128] Since February 2020, Fu has returned to Hong Kong because of the COVID-19 pandemic, with his last appearance being at the 2020 Welsh Open. Due to not playing in any events since then, his ranking has steadily dropped out of the Top 64, but an offer of an invitational tour card means he would not need to qualify to rejoin the tour as a result.[129]

Status and records


Fu is a prolific break-builder, having made over 500 century breaks.[130] He achieved a maximum break on four occasions, at the 2000 Scottish Masters,[12] the qualifying stages for the 2012 World Open, the 2015 Masters and the 2015 Gibraltar Open.[131][132] Fu has also made a break of 148 after receiving a free ball in an exhibition match in 2020.[133]

He once held the record for the longest frame in the history of televised snooker. The record of 77 minutes, held with Mark Selby, was played out in the decisive final frame during the quarter-final match at the 2007 UK Championship held in Telford, England. Fu eventually lost the match 7–9.[134] However, the record was then broken by Shaun Murphy and Dave Harold in a match at the China Open later in the same season. The new record is 93 minutes.[135]

Personal life


Fu was educated in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, and has lived for a time in both Wales and Scotland. He currently lives in London, where he once lived with his wife Shirley, who is also from Hong Kong and who has an MA in supply chain logistics. The couple married in 2011 and have two daughters, born in 2012 and 2015. His wife and his two daughters returned to Hong Kong in 2016 to facilitate their education.[136][137] On June 30, 2017, Fu was appointed by the Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region as a Justice of the Peace.[138]

Fu is a Buddhist and subsequently a vegetarian. He claims it helps him stay calm after making a mistake and believes snooker is a unique game because after doing so, one must sit and watch their opponent perform; thus a player must learn to forget all the good and bad things that happened beforehand. Going meatless makes him feel more energised during competition. Shirley has been a vegetarian since she was a young teenager. The couple attempt to explain to their children the reasons why the family is vegetarian, especially the importance of respecting life, but Fu insists it is up to them to decide as they grow older and have better faculties of reason.[139] Fu hosted a ten-episode series on Hong Kong's ViuTV entitled Marco Fu and Friends [zh], with the format of an informal chat show with Hong Kong celebrities and playing a frame of snooker with them.[140]
