SHI Yuanyuan, or Victoria to give her the English name she chose, is a well-known figure on the tour, a former journalist providing copy for Chinese news outlets and web sites turned Sheffield-based entrepreneur. As well as organising waistcoat sponsorship logos with Chinese companies for players Victoria has since the summer been looking after Ding Junhui following his parting of the ways with long-time managers Garry Baldrey and Keith Warren. We at Inside Snooker don’t know what type of green tea she has put him on, but it is working. Four ranking titles, and counting.
