THE 2015 PDC Unicorn World Youth Champion, Max has emerged as the sport's top-ranked German player since emerging as a 15-year-old starlet.

Having initially competed in 2011 on the PDC's Development Tour in Germany, Hopp qualified for the World Youth Championship the following year before making his TV debut at the 2013 World Championship, where as a 16-year-old he defeated Charl Pietersen before losing to Denis Ovens 3-2.

After joining the circuit and continuing his development on the ProTour and second-tier tours, he then qualified for the European Championship before making his second World Championship appearance.

A run to the second round at the 2015 World Championship - his third Alexandra Palace appearance - was followed by Hopp making his debut at both the UK Open and in the World Cup of Darts, where he reached the quarter-finals alongside Jyhan Artut.

A breakthrough year ended with glory on the big stage as Hopp followed up his battling wins in the early rounds of the World Youth Championship by edging past Nathan Aspinall 6-5 in the final in Minehead to pick up the title.

Another World Championship appearance was followed by a Development Tour title for Hopp in Germany as well as a quarter-final appearance in a European Tour event in Hamburg and appearances in the European Championship, World Series of Darts Finals and Grand Slam of Darts to complete a successful 2016.

A second round loser to Kim Huybrechts at the 2017 World Championship, having seen off Vincent van der Voort in their opener, Hopp's progression continued with another World Cup of Darts quarter-final as he partnered Martin Schindler to the last eight in Frankfurt before making his World Series of Darts debut in the U.S. Darts Masters in Las Vegas.

Hopp claimed the biggest win of his career at the 2018 German Open, defeating Michael Smith 8-7 in a thrilling final in front of a passionate German crowd.

The German backed up his European success with a second PDC ranking title at Players Championship 19 in Dublin in September 2018.
