The Shanghai Masters finally returns to the calendar on Monday, with a stellar line-up at the big-money non-ranking tournament in China.

The event has not been held since 2019 due to the Chinese tournaments being wiped off the schedule due to Covid, but it is back and has attracted the biggest names in the sport.

Ronnie O’Sullivan is the defending champion after winning the last three editions of the Shanghai Masters and it is the first time fans will see him in action this season after choosing not to play the Championship League and the European Masters.

The Rocket is far from the only star of the show, with the world’s top 16 joined by the four highest-ranked Chinese players outside of the top 16 and four local wildcards, including exciting 20-year-old female star Bai Yulu.

Barry Hawkins may feel a little unlucky to miss out after surging back into the top 16 by winning the European Masters last month, but the field had been set before that victory.
