New Zealand’s Paul Coll has achieved a number of PSA World Tour titles in his short time on the Tour and, in January 2017, became the first New Zealander since Ross Norman in 1995 to claim a place inside the world’s top 20.
His first Tour triumph came at the Australia Day Challenge in 2013 and, after claiming a further title that same year, he retained the Australia Day Challenge in 2014 and again the following year.
Kiwi Coll picked up his fifth title at the next event, the Open de Paris in March 2015 and claimed his third title of 2015 at the NT Open two months later.
Coll forced his way into the world’s top 50 in the September 2015 World Rankings with victory over then Australian No.1 Cameron Pilley in the final of the Australian Open the previous month.
He ended the year in style by defeating Ben Coleman to lift the London Open, but it was 2016 where Coll really made a name for himself.
After a series of stunning dives against former World No.1 James Willstrop during March’s Canary Wharf Classic earned Coll the nickname ‘Superman’, the Kiwi took three titles on the bounce in June in his home country.
Coll’s breakthrough moment came in December’s Channel VAS Championship in Weybridge, where he battled through from qualification to lift his first PSA M100 title - upsetting established top 20 players such as Max Lee, Miguel Angel Rodriguez, Daryl Selby and, finally, Tarek Momen to claim his place among them in the January rankings.
He then made the semi finals of the Canary Wharf Classic and the China Open in the early part of 2017, and the quarter finals of the World Championships.
Coll finished runner-up to Marwan ElShorbagy at the Motor City Open at the start of 2018, before also finishing runner-up in the China Open, losing to the other ElShorbagy.
He made the last eight in every tournament he entered from then, up to the end of the 2018-19 campaign, including semi final appearances at the US Open and the Black Ball Open in the latter part of 2018, and he was rewarded with his best ever spot of World No.5 in the World Rankings in April 2019.
After quarter final appearances at the Tournament of Champions and the World Championships, Coll went on to win the Canary Wharf Classic, the biggest title of his career to date.
He then followed that up with more quarter final showings, this time at the DPD Open and El Gouna International, before reaching the last four at the British Open in Hull.
