Ding stands the fourth in the world, while newly crowned world champion Stuart Bingham of England reaches world top.
The 28-year-old Ding, who suffered a surprise 4-13 defeat to Englishman Judd Trump at the World Snooker Championship and had to accept an early exit last week, has experienced a dismal season, failing at the first round in six major tournaments including the UK Championship and the Masters.
But Ding also made a history this season as he had climbed to the top postion in the world rankings on Dec. 3, 2014, becoming the first Asian to rank first in the world.
His top ranking mainly came from his good results last season, as he won five tounaments.
Fu Jiajun of Hong Kong, China ranks the 11th, while Xiao Guodong is 21st, and Liang Wenbo, 22nd. Enditem
