Reanne Evans
Reanne Evans (born 25 October 1985 in Dudley, West Midlands) is an English former professional snooker player who now competes as an amateur. She is a multiple WLBSA Ladies World Snooker Championship, a title she won a record ten successive times between 2005 and 2014, before losing to Ng On Yee in the semi finals in 2015. She played on the main professional snooker tour during the 2010–11 season, but she failed to win any matches and was unable to retain her place on the tour in subsequent seasons. In May 2013, she qualified for the 2013 Wuxi Classic as an amateur competitor, becoming the first woman ever to reach the final stages of a ranking snooker tournament. She became one of four players selected to play against local opponents in a wildcard round, where she lost 2–5 to Zhu Yinghui. 
Professional Main Tour
After winning 61 consecutive women's matches and defeating reigning world champion John Higgins 4–3 at the 2009 Six-red World Championship, Evans was awarded a wild card on the professional main tour for the 2010–11 season, enabling her to enter all ranking events at the qualifying stage. This made her the first woman to play on the main snooker tour since Allison Fisher in 1994–95. Evans failed to win a match throughout her season on the tour, suffering 18 consecutive defeats. She entered Q-School, but was unable to qualify for the main tour in the 2011–12 seasons.
In the 2012–13 season, Evans won enough Q-School matches to earn a "top-up" place in the qualifying rounds for the 2013 Wuxi Classic, competing as an amateur. In her qualifying match, she defeated Thailand's Thepchaiya Un-Nooh 5–4 to become the first woman to reach the final stages of a professional ranking snooker tournament. Originally scheduled to play world number 2 Neil Robertson in the last 64, she then became one of four players selected to play an extra wildcard round against local Chinese opponents, a system she publicly criticized. She traveled to Wuxi and played Chinese teenager Zhu Yinghui in the wildcard round, but lost 2–5. 
In March 2015, Evans was awarded a place in the knock-out qualifying rounds of the 2015 World Snooker Championship. She lost her opening match 8–10 to 1997 world champion Ken Doherty.
