Neil Robertson (born 11 February 1982) is an Australian professional snooker player. He made his first breakthrough into the top professional ranks in the 2006/2007 season. He won the 2010 World Championship and was the world number one later in the same year, a ranking that he attained again in 2013 and 2014.
Robertson is the only Australian to have won a ranking event, and was undefeated in his first six televised finals. Robertson is also one of twelve players to win both the world and UK titles, and one of ten to win the Triple Crown of World Championship, UK Championship and Masters. As a prolific break-builder, Robertson has compiled more than 600 century breaks in professional competition. During the 2013/2014 season he became the first player to make 100 centuries in a single season.
Robertson is considered Australia's best ever snooker player, as well as one of the best players from outside the United Kingdom in the sport's history. He plays left-handed.
