There are lies, damned lies and statistics, but the stats of the snooker world only tell the truth in representing Judd Trump's quite astonishing body of work in recent times.
Trump claimed five ranking titles in a dominant 2020/21 campaign as he revelled in victories at the English Open, Northern Ireland Open, World Grand Prix, German Masters and Gibraltar Open.
The bounding Bristolian also finished runner-up at the UK Championship and Championship League, reached semi-finals at the European Masters and Champion of Champions while enjoying runs to the quarter-finals of the Scottish Open, Tour Championship and World Championship.

Trump's biggest disappointment of the season was arguably testing positive for coronavirus that forced him to withdraw from the Masters in January in an otherwise sparkling run of consistency that confirmed his position as the sport's undisputed number one a year after lifting a record six ranking titles.

Two incredible Judd Trump shots - but which was better?

The 2019 world champion topped all of the prominent stats, finished seventh in the average shot time stats on the tour and moved up to sixth on the all-time list of ranking event winners. A feat that is made all the more remarkable considering he only turned professional in 2005 and celebrated a first ranking triumph in winning the 2011 China Open at the age of 21.
Here are a few of the key stats in cementing Trump's place at the snooker summit after the latest campaign.
