Qualified As:

German Masters Champion


Carter enjoyed perhaps the sweetest moment of his career in January 2013 when he won the German Masters in Berlin. He came from 5-3 down to beat Marco Fu 9-6 in the final and win his third ranking title.

That came after years of battling Crohn's disease so it gave Carter great satisfaction to prove that he could still win major titles.

A few weeks earlier, he had suffered an agonising defeat in the semi-finals of the UK Championship, as he led Shaun Murphy 8-4 but lost 9-8.
